Tuesday, 3-24-09 - North Woods
The action today was in the daylight. The squirrel that likes to come bounding across the drive, decided to climb half way up the owls roost tree, play nearby and eat a nut. The female owl, who was already awake, became very alert in very bright light before sunset.
After fly out, she flew briefly to a nearby tree and then up the hill. We thought the male had arrived from the north and then lead her out going south, but it was very hard to see. Today was completely the opposite of yesterday's relaxed fishing session.
They're both being very quiet now. Its hard to know if that's because they're now bonded and nesting should begin or if we've missed breeding this season and they're now just relaxing.
