Unusual Occupancy

Doesn’t the owl know its ‘not supposed’ to be in the box until October?
Most times during the warmer months screech owls roost in the foliage, which allows virtually limitless options for a roost. Did this owl get harassed by songbirds and fled into the box? Did it flee from a predator? It did look a little ragged, maybe it is molting and wanted some extra security? Maybe it was a juvenile just trying it? Ah speculation. Who knows? What is known, is that it spent most if not all day in the box. BTW this is the normal style box on the purple martin pole.
