Update from the Wolery…episode 16e

‘in which the ‘box’ is a very busy place…’

Happily our owl couple has more or less resumed the schedule to which we had become accustomed.  Taking into account daylight savings time and ever-lengthening days, we are now treated to their presence at about 8 pm.

Highlights since the last episode…………..

The third owl (who made an appearance in episode 16b) returned briefly,

and again was warned away.

Very, very loud  squawking from inside the box – lest you think hatchlings, it is a very mature, single voice.

By day, the top of the box has become a favorite landing spot for all manner of other birds.

    Loving these Wolery posts. I constantly have birds coming to my kitchen window sill for snacks. Occasionally a bluejay will fly in and hop around on the floor, looking at me inquisitively. I’ve also had to rescue numerous hummingbirds after they have flown in. It is a wonderful experience to connect with our feathered friends!
