At this point, we've lost tract of their nightly roosts, so it's hard to figure out where their evening is starting. The evening started slowly with the first sign of an owl being twenty to thirty minutes after dusk. The female called from the area near last year's nest cavity.
Once we caught up to her, she moved about quickly. She went across the drive with the male, and ended up near the waterfall at the northeast edge of The Pool. The male went into a cavity in a London Plain but quickly exited.
They then went up to a tree by the West Drive around 101st, and he went into a cavity in a different London Plain. They ended up being very cooperative in this tree with him flying back and forth showing his fiery red image in the sky.
They then ended up moving south, stopped by their nest cavity from 2007, and down to the playground at 100th.
