On Wednesday night the Great Horned Owl continued in Central Park. Unlike the Barred Owl that has been over birded in the North Woods, this owl is currently in a roost about 100 feet high. I'm sure folks flocking to see it are slightly annoying, but on this evening it was a Cooper's Hawk, two Red-tailed Hawks and two helicopters that kept annoying this owl.
It did all of the normal "owl yoga" (stretching) and preening before flying out to a nearby branch. It did some more preening and coughed up one of the largest pellets I've ever seen. (Owls cough up the bones and fur of their prey.)
The owl made a long flight south and ended up in a tall tree near the water before flying down to hunt. I suspect it was after a Mallard.
