Saturday, 4-12-08 Part 2 - North Woods Eastern Screech-Owls

After fly out, we got to see and hear some fun activity.

The owls continued their campaign against the raccoons nearby.  We got to see the male make ten passes at a raccoon as it made its way down a tree close to the nest cavity.

The nest cavity clearly has nestlings.  We got to clearer pictures of young ones tonight.  Soon their should be fledglings.
