North Woods Eastern Screech-Owls

The North Woods Eastern Screech-Owl pair was briefly seen last night.  Both owls look great. 

While we were watching them a photographer with a flashlight and high-powered flash was also in the North Woods looking for owls.  I must recommend to anyone who wants to study owls in the North Woods, that this is not an effective approach to finding them or photographing them.

To watch owls in Central Park and really get to know them, and you have to be as non-intrusive as possible.  If you're quiet, keep your distance, move slowly, photograph without flash and take the time to learn their habits, these owls will share their lives with you.
