Wildwoods was brought a barred owl yesterday (deceased, unfortunately, likely from a window collision). This owl, when already at least 1 year old, was banded at Hawk Ridge by Dave Evans back in 1998. Based on this, he is at least 16-17 years old, and the third oldest barred owl on record.
We are sorry that a window claimed his life, but glad that he had lived such a long one. We loved that we could learn something about him from the science of bird banding. Thank you to Dave Evans and the other bird banders of HRBO!
