  1. Hi Scott, At about 2 this afternoon I was working in my office at site 8. Even with the windows closed I became aware of a bird call that sounded like a screech owl. I went out onto the back porch and confirmed that a screech owl was trilling persistently from somewhere in my neighbors yard. I got out my binoculars and tried to track it down. It seemed to be moving as the trill became fainter until a surge in auto and air traffic drowned it out completely.
