Friday, 6-27-08 - North Woods Eastern Screech-Owls
Tonight started with the usual American Robin mobbing of the owls. The family is no longer a unified group, with the younger owls going off ahead of their parents. It seems as though the young ones try and sneak out while the robins have their attention on their parents.
Tonight, two went north along the creek. After a few stops, we lost them.
Then we heard two owls near the roost tree, singing to one another. Leaf cover prevented us from finding them.
