Monarch Butterfly and an Eastern Screech-Owl

I've been busy with work since getting back from Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons, and haven't done much birding in the last two weeks.

Today, I spend an hour in the North Woods.  It was just the right amount of time in the heat.  The wildflower meadow was quiet, without a fall migrant in sight.  The same for The Loch, lots of American Robins and Gray Catbirds, but nothing unusual.

So, the highlight of the day was a photogenic Monarch Butterfly and the North Wood's Red-phased Eastern Screech-Owl.
