Just back from vacation, I went up to The Pool to see how the female Eastern Screech-Owl was doing. She's doing just fine but it's clear she's a widow now.
Tonight, as she left the cavity, it looked like she was banded. I haven't seen a clear look at a band this season, so this was a surprise.
After fly out she went to a tree to the west of the cavity, rather than east, and then ended up going across the ice to Sweetgums on the north shore of The Pool. She then went up to the Great Hill and out of sight.
