This morning started off with a nice surprise... an Eastern Screech Owl right by the back window! I have two screech/wood duck boxes in the yard. In the back one (about 150 feet from the living room window) there is a regular screech owl most days. However, today at the close box (only about 30 feet from the living room window) there was a second owl. Lily had mentioned she had seen one in this box a few days ago, but after looking for it several dozen times without success I presumed it had moved on. This morning I was greeted by this intense stare glaring from the close box. I managed to get a couple of pics and decided not to move any closer. I hope he settles into this home for a while!
