Bruce sends an owl report from Sunday


The park looked wonderful with a light dusting of snow, Sunday. In the morning, it was cloudy and the paths were icy. The Great Horned Owl had moved to a new location, NW from its previous spot.

GHO keeps a close eye on the Red-tailed Hawk

The Red-tailed Hawk flew off to the feeders, but soon returned and went to three different trees surrounding the GHO. In the span of about 15 minutes, we were treated to four Hawk cries. Then the Immature Red-tailed Hawk flew NE out of sight.
