Sunday, 4-27-08 - North Woods Eastern Screech-Owls
Leaf cover is making it more difficult than ever to photograph these owls. The whole family is doing fine. They were noisy this evening, both adults and kids. All were flying more northerly than I've seen them. After some initial feedings, the parents started to hoot-hoot, and the kids became silent. I went down to the edge of the Loch stream to find both parents keeping track of a raccoon. It soon waddled off, but the owls were now silent. It was now late, and with the action over, I left for the evening.
