Owl Season Has Begun

While there were reports of Eastern Screech-Owls sightings over the last month and the sighting of a Saw-whet last weekend, today was the first day I saw or heard owls first-hand.

I saw my first owl of the fall, a Northern Saw-whet Owl.  Plus while leaving the park at dusk, I heard the trill call of an Eastern Screech-Owl.
