WC has previously reported a house guest.
Saturday night we watched a lady owl visit the nest box. A little later, the male joined her in the box. We can only speculate, and young children read this blog. But the second step toward having an active nest has been met: our boy has a date. The date was interested enough in the box to have a look inside. And then to let the male join her. You are now invited to waggle your eyebrows.
Screech-owls are nocturnal. There’s very little light when they are out and about. WC could use a flash, but that might chase the birds away. So, for now at least, we’ll make do with these semi-silhouettes.
WC will keep you apprised.
