Could not see the owl this morning at about 10 a.m. I looked hard from several different angles with maximum zoom and all I found in the way of vertebrate wildlife was this ground squirrel.
Absence of seeing is not necessarily the same as absence of owl. It was cold this morning and the bird could have hunkered down even farther than yesterday, or slipped into a squirrel burrow. However, these are the days when owls in past years have departed on their northward migration.
If anyone sees the owl today, please post a comment below. Thank you. I’ll check again tomorrow and report.
