South wind has brought increased humidity and higher morning temperatures.

7AM, one long, loud monotonic trill from the driveway, but we couldn’t see the owl.
8:10PM, T saw an owl high over the driveway; flew up to or over the roof.

PM, around 8:15, descending trills outside the window on the driveway.

AM walking to the bus stop (Bayland/Northwood) at 6:25AM; T whistled up an owl there on Northwood and Bayland. He did a descending trill a couple of times and right away an owl appeared in the oak branches over our heads and gave repeated and vehement reply (“mine! mine”).
On the way back I saw an owl in a crepe myrtle being quietly mobbed by cardinals near Northwood and Euclid. I wonder if these are all the young and it is dispersal time…..?

Hot Aug days

8:20pm, male owl flew from N to crepe myrtle; he changed his position by a little a couple of times before we lost sight of him. No sign of the female, no vocalizations.

In the midst of hot weather (99H, 81L)

8:22pm, heard descending trills from outside the shop window! We turned off the lights and took a look. Each of us saw an owl; one flew from the east crepe myrtle to the street; one flew from the driveway branch to the computer oak—thus, two owls out there.
