Barred Owl Perches On Turtle Pond Island
Great Horned Owl

Barred Owl On The Hill

Central Park has had three Barred Owls this week.  Two have been in fairly consistent locations.  However, one has been moving around since it arrived, preferring deciduous trees but leaving a roost when the tree loses its leaves.  This has had the same owl changing trees by about 100 to 300 yards every few days.  So, the question about this owl, who has now been seen on two nights in a conifer this week, the same owl that had been preferring deciduous trees earlier in the fall?  Or a new owl?
