Secrets of Croton Point Park, Part 3: For Whom the Owl Hoots

Before the GHO flyout on Saturday, we noticed quite a few Eastern Screech Owl calls. After waiting more than 1 year since last hearing the North Woods ESO's call, this was a beautiful reminder of why they are called Screech Owls! After some careful searching, we located this shy female high up in her roost.

By night fall she had fallen silent again and I took this video just before all light was gone. Due to wind noise, I took out the sound, but feel free to click the snoflake button in the bottom right of the youtube player.
