Nesting Already?!

An egg, site 1! Although this shot doesn’t show it well, the egg was visible in its entirety for a brief moment when mom was up in the opening. From the information I have gathered this is ~ a month early from normal, which in the north east prime egg laying time is, mid March-mid April. Hopefully, late winter weather won’t effect the success. Good news, there seems to be plenty of prey around given the cache of what appears to be a mouse. Only 2 sites (2 boxes total) have a box camera, this happens to be one of them. The fact that this egg is somewhat visible suggest that incubation has not yet started, which I guess is not unusual from reading other screech owl cam chronologies. Also, this confirms the Gray Phase here is the Female.
