The fun begins!

Murray Head alerted me to this morning's posting on

This may be the red-phased screech-owl recently released in the park by a rehabilitator. In any case the exciting news is: OWL FLY-OUT SEASON BEGINS.

The owl was discovered yesterday by Stella, a birdwatcher and hawk-watcher who was a well-known presence on the Hawk Bench during all the years of Pale Male's successful breeding on Fifth Avenue, and an active participant in the nest-removal protests of 2004. Thanks, Stella!
