Those Pesty Owls - Feb. 05, 2011

An early morning drive found one of the Corliss Brother's Screech Owls catching a bit of sun. It wasn't long before a flock of birds came along and chased it into it's hole with some needing a closer look than others.

A Blue Jay putting in it's two cents.

A Titmouse that apparently wasn't certain of what it saw...

and needed a closer look!

I stopped by an hour or so later and found both owls sitting out. I'm guessing this is a mated pair as they're tolerating each other at such close range, approximately 100' between the trees.
