It was the coldest night of the fall so far. Freezing and very windy.
Surprisingly, the female was sitting at the edge of her cavity as though it was warm out. When a raccoon went by, she was highly suspect perking up her ears and turned her head all around to keep track of the intruder.
At fly out she hopped around on a few close by tree branches before flying southeast. I soon found her with her mate. Despite the cold temperatures, neither owl was frigid tonight! She called, he responded and they copulated.
She then went to the ground and although I can't be entirely sure, I think she returned with a mouse.
