There was a large crowd tonight. There was an "Owl Tour" and lots of birders. They female was very slow to come out and took her time. She flew out about a half hour later than the male. They had sex twice and disappeared to the east soon afterwards.
Before fly out both owls were hiding. The male looked out briefly before waiting another five minutes to pop-up into the cavity.
He was jolly and round on a cold evening. We've figured out who was who when they've copulated so he's certainly the male.
This is the male waiting for the female to fly out.
She stayed in the tree for a long while.
Then she flew out. There were two quick copulations, a brief pause and then a trip across the West Drive.
