Saturday, 3-28-09 - North Woods

It was a surprising night.  The female owl was outside her cavity this evening watching a raccoon who has usurped it!  She flew away early, and we had a chance to watch her preen.  It was good to have a chance to see her in the bright light.  

I haven't been able to spot a band on her this year.  This has me puzzled but it could just be hidden by feathers.

Both owls went to the trees they have been harvesting.  After about twenty minutes the male went to the other side of the stream.  We lost him for a good long while, until she called and he returned. They then both went over to the other side of the stream and we called it a night.
