The North Woods Screech-Owls seem to have settled down again after all of the storm clean up activity. For about a week they seemed to be all over the place, but now that tree trimming equipment isn't parked next to their old roost, they've returned to their favorite tree.
Keeping track of them has been frustrating. Some nights we don't hear them and on others they're very vocal. Most nights we don't see them, but on some we can watch them fly for blocks. I can't wait for the late fall, when the leaves will drop and they'll be easier to find.
