Long-eared Owl in a Snow Storm
A Long-eared Owl ended up being found in a very unlikely place in Central Park on Saturday, during a snow storm. The bird was in a small tree at the edge of the Reservoir. A kind Central Park birder, who's name is unfortunately just on the tip of my tongue, walked 10 blocks in the storm to show me the bird! Thank you.
This season has had a number of Long-eared Owls, who only seem to be staying for a day or two. Let's hope one or two of them end up staying a little while longer this winter.
