It took about an hour of hearing a squeaking noise in the woods to figure out what it was. We heard ascending squeaks that moved through the forest, first far away and then noticeably closer to the native plant garden at Sur de Mont. Finally, when it was very near and we could make out 3 distinct individuals squeaking, we got a glimpse of an owl in flight. Around the same time, we also heard an adult barred owl call. Mystery solved!

Sadly, I lost the recording I made when my phone was stolen shortly after this so I no longer have the audio evidence.
