A Great Horned Owl was in Central Park on Monday. It was unclear if it was a returning guest from a few weeks ago or a new bird. I found it around 6:30 p.m. and was able to keep track of it for over an hour. It flew to various trees along the Lake's shoreline from the Indian Caves to the Oven. The owl seemed to go wherever there were groups of quacking ducks.
(This post was delayed for a few days to protect the Great Horned Owl. A few weeks ago, the fly outs turned into nightly circuses, disturbing the previous Great Horned Owl. So, it seemed appropriate to delay the news for the comfort of the bird. However, one day in Central Park seemed to be enough for this individual. It has not been seen since Monday.)
