Crows and the Great Horned Owl
Evening Grosbeak

Sheep Meadow Barred Owl

I wanted to watch an owl by myself tonight and I got my wish.  Except for two small groups of owl watchers who stayed for only a few minutes, I had the Sheep Meadow owl all to myself tonight.  It was high up in one of the Red Oaks and flew around the roost tree and adjacent trees to about five different perches before I lost it.  This was one of four (maybe five) Barred Owls located in the park today.
