Barred Owl and Crows
Northern Saw-whet Owl Pellet

Two Barred Owls

Central Park had two Barred Owls today.  I got to see both.  We're having a great fall for Northern Saw-whet and Barred Owls this year.  There is speculation that strong westerly and northwesterly winds may have pushed many owls to the east coast.  Whatever the cause, I'm happy for the abundance. 

The one that I think is a new arrival, flew out to an open branch and vocalized briefly this evening.
