On Friday evening we had quite a scare. The male Eastern Screech-Owl ran into a car while flying out. Quick thinking by Lee, stopped another car from running over him. We all felt that he was dead as he lay motionless on the road, but like Lazarus, he quickly arose and flew off into a nearby bush.
He stayed put and recovered from the shock for a long while as we all worried about him. Then he flew off to a nearby branch and then soon he was off north out of sight. His flight pattern seemed normal, but we continued to worry about him as we left the park.
