Sunday, 4-13-07 - North Woods Eastern Screech-Owls
It was a nice evening. Not as warm as yesterday, but not too cold. Both adults traded places in the cavity before flying out. At least two nestlings are in the cavity.
One of the owls "barked" loudly at a Towhee just before fly out, moving up and down frantically.
After fly out, the mother called for a great deal of time from just in front of the cavity. I think she may be enticing the children to fledge or at least explore the cavity's edge, but I can't be sure.
The next two weeks should be lots of fun after all of our waiting.
