I HEARD AN OWL CALL MY NAME
September 21, 2008
It was about 4:30 a.m. today, and a screech owl called for about a minute outside the bedroom window.
For some reason, he thought my name was "Winnie."
When another screech owl, began to drum, they both stopped...
Yesterday, after several dickie birds mobbed the owl box, I activated the screech owl for the first time this fall. Nothing -- as nothing is expected for another month at least.
In the past four years, we have had a male screech owl move in anywhere from late October to early December, with the date getting slightly later each year.
