Saturday, 2-9-08 - North Woods Eastern Screech-Owls

More fun on yet another confusing flight.  We're now able to track the owl after fly out and find his mate, but we still can't find her cavity.

It was raining lightly, so he too a little longer than usual getting out of bed.

We heard the female to the north before he flew out.  It was a strange evening.  He flew to a tree south of his cavity, then west across the drive, made lots of calls and flew back to the Loch.

We then searched for them to the north and found both of them.  They soon copulated, and we then lost them.  Again, we left with more questions than answers.
