Barred is Back

Site 1

A barred owl has been wintering in a wood lot not more than 1/4 mile away from site 1 since late 2010 early 2011.
I never did document or confirm the barred late 2011 to early 2012 but had my suspicions. Last season, 2012/2013 it was well documented hanging out the whole winter. So now a barred owl is back…the same owl…my guess would be most likely. It can pose a danger to the screech owls but so far they have fared ok vs. the near by barred. I had no inclination that it was around until this sighting. I guess it is nice to see it around, but truthful I was hoping not too find one so close this year.
