Screech Owl

January, 21, 2012

The 1st real snow of the year fell this week with a few inches coming down today. One of the benefits of the frozen precipitation was the arrival of the 1st Screech Owl to use the nest box in the back yard for 2012 .


It sat in the hole for a brief time mid-afternoon only to be chased back into the box by several scolding Chickadee and Titmouse which can be heard in the brief video below.


It came back out a bit later and sat in the hole until leaving for the evening around 5pm.
