Sweet! a Long-Eared Owl Cam!

someone on the local bird list-serve past along a great link of a long-eared owl nest in Montana, I will pass it along as well.
rrrrg. never did find roosting long-eareds after some dedicated time in some great looking habitat, but with all the Barreds around they would be wise to hide, always next year!

A Coyote While We Wait

Site 1

A Coyote has taken up resident in and around site 1, seen its tracks all winter, but just recently saw it for the first time, today it was lounging around…

Not much to report owl wise, the male spends some/most time in the entrance to the presumed nest box, hopefully as the female dutifully incubates, and every now and then spends the day in ‘his’ box.
If my estimates of incubation are correct then hatching should be less than a week away.
