Eastern Screech Owl took up residence in a nesting box in our back yard. Fledged three young, with the first being seen May 14, 2013
finally caught up with her on a sunny day; when she first saw me and heard me she took off, but fortunately she didn't go far and tolerated me getting pretty close when I did it just a little at a time
At Mound 3.
Al final de un sendero posterior al cerro de la Bufa, en Zacatecas, México, en áreas de vegetación inducida dominada por la presencia de eucaliptos.
Found this owl when cut down a tree. Pulled out of the hole, thought it was injured. The owl was sleeping and once he woke up he was very alert. It let us hold and pet him and hen flew off around 30 minutes later.
Two birds heard calling to one another upstream from the duck pond in Sequoia park
Sitting at top of dead spruce tree in Assiniboine Park at 11am, then flew into more closed vegetation
finally saw one of the owls again in same area as last time, could not get close to her, a creek and lots of brush and trees between us. The Blue Jays and Crows let everyone know about the owl.
Such a cute cooperative little guy. Again it was cold windy and drizzly that day though.
Heard a pair calling to each other. Female call was higher pitch and one sound versus the hoot-hoot (pause) hoot of the male.
Seen in a tree just off the road in the AM
