Spreading the Resistance: NJ

Got this nice note from NJ.

I am very excited to report that I had an owl in the box today! We put the owl box up just over 4 weeks ago, about 13′ high in an oak, south facing. We had cleared all of the lower branches in that tree and a few of the adjacent trees.

Here’s a picture of the grey Eastern Screech Owl. This is the first time I have seen a screech owl in the wild! I’ve heard one near my yard twice this past summer/fall (and once more about 10+ years ago), but wasn’t expecting to get one so soon.

Thank you very much for reporting back! Congrats on the new perspective resident!
