I posted a Great Horned Owl on eBird a couple of days ago. I could only hear one for sure but I thought I could hear a second one way off so I called a friend that lives near the end of Athenia Blvd and told him to go outside and listen - he could hear the second one clearly. These are probably returning birds that I have heard previously. The Crows appear to be back - lots of cawing from several birds when I went to the post office this aft.
One for the Timbird/eBird account: Ann Gaston had a Northern Shrike at her feeders on Sunday - the Chickadees swarmed it and chased it off!!!
