1st Fall Screech Owl of 2011 - October 07, 2011

A bit early for Screech Owls to be roosting in holes in trees but this individual was fun to see. This is my earliest fall "Screech in a hole" to date. The trees are still full of leaves which is usually enough to hide them from both predators and scolding song birds. Maybe the chilly overnight temps pushed it to roost in the cavity.


A visit to the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge this past Tuesday found several Wild Turkeys roosting at the Hellcat parking lot along the fence.


While further down the road towards lot #6 this Blue Grosbeak perched up for a few moments.
