Finally a Photo of the Female?

Site 3

It is not the first photo, but the first decent one where the new owl’s facial features can be clearly seen. Both being gray phased, it quite difficult, so this is the first photo that definitively shows ways to tell the two owls apart…The first thing that I notice is the almost complete lack of facial disk borders. Less obvious is a bit more rusty highlights. She seems to be spending quite a bit of time in the pole box (without the box cam) so we are hoping she switches it up to nest.

compare to this owl (male most likely) photo from 3/14/13, notice much stronger facial disk borders.
