Over the offseason the owling challenge rules committee determined that an increase in scoring would add more interest. Thus in a unanimous decision it decided to allow points for owls in previously used hollows; provided the hollows had been inactive owl wise for at least a season. This decision has already made an impact. As I was able to pick up another point in a known roost. An owl was first seen here back in Dec. 2012, and was seen on and off into the early spring of 2013. Since then, the hollow seemingly had gone inactive until this past Wednesday when something looked a bit off. Turns out it was a very well camouflaged screech owl that was taking up part of the entrance. I am up 2-0.
