Arrow Barred Owl

After 31 years of banding, it's seldom we capture a new species but that's just what happened "This Week at Hilton Pond" when an adult Barred Owl--species #126!--hit our mist nets and stayed there long enough for us to extract it. To read about this significant encounter--and whether the owl used its formidable talons and bill to damage the bander--please visit our photo essay for 27-30 April 2012 at

While there don't forget to scroll down for a tally of all birds banded and recaptured during the period--plus a miscellaneous note about one of our Purple Finches that showed up far north of Hilton Pond. We also include links to our lists of all birds banded at the Center, and of all those encountered again outside York County.

For a day-to-day account of nature happenings at Hilton Pond Center, please like our new Facebook page at

Happy Nature Watching!
