One owl has been spending some days roosting in the football tree. In the afternoons the owl is not there, probably b/c the sun makes it too hot; this afternoon I saw the owl nestled down in a shady crotch of the tree.
I have not seen both owls since the fledglings left.

8:10PM, a series of descending trills. Didn’t see any owl but it was close by. So glad to know there is one around.

Haven’t seen an owl since midweek—haven’t found a roost or seen a flicker of movement either at dawn or dusk, on the driveway or over the carport or at the owl pool.

Saw a hawk today on the branch over the garage. It was looking down at the football perch and pulling at something in it’s talons. Haven’t seen any owls today. I scouted around under the perch and around the driveway, looking for masses of dead owl feathers. I sure don’t want my little owls to have been eaten by a hawk.
