Screech Owl - Essex, MA

The 1st Eastern Screech Owl of the fall season found it's way into one of the boxes in my backyard today. It sat in the hole a few times though the day but was chased into the box several times by both Blue Jays, Chickadees and a few Tufted Titmouse. These were taken at the end of the day just before dusk.


A brief video of the owl as it watched both me and the birds in the yard. 1st at 700mm and then at 1000mm from the kitchen window with a curtain hiding my movements from the owl.


A close up as it watched the lens move in the kitchen window


and one last shot in the fading light before it headed off to hunt for the evening.
