First Fall Eastern Screech-Owl Photographs

I was able to photograph my first Central Park Screech-Owl of the season on Sunday.  (I had seen a Screech-Owl two weeks ago, and heard another three weeks ago but was unable to photograph them.)

The owl is in a very public place, so please forgive me for keeping its location a secret.

A very noisy group of Blue Jays found the owl for me.

In addition to the Blue Jays, this Yellow-bellied Sapsucker and...

...this squirrel were interested in the owl.

I came back at dusk to watch the fly-out.

The owl waited until it was very dark to fly out and I lost it as soon as it flew out.
