Like Last Year

Site 3

Just like last year, not only did the female (red phased) owl spend some time in August roosting in the pole box, she is making frequent visits and has been roosting there a few times a week. There are some pictures around the web of screech owls in natural roosts in August, and most seem to be in obvious molt (balding head). This owl while she may be molting is not as obvious as the pics. Most other screech owls that I have experience with don’t seem to move in to roost until October.
