Lake Tappan Sunset

DSCN9096-001Went on a Moon Walk with Bergen SWAN the other night at Lake Tappan (special permit required), and caught the last vestiges of a setting sun before we walked along the edge of the reservoir.

Birding wasn't great (it was dusk and night-time after all), but I may have had a first --  possibly heard a Barn Owl calling.

I saw quite a lot of Barn Owls when I worked in the Meadowlands, but I'd never heard one.

Before the walk, SWAN intern John Adriance played the call for the participants, and what we hard sure sounded like it.

You can hear a Barn Owl call and other common owl calls here.
