I haven’t seen my screech owl in the box for about 10 days. I’m not sure if it is hunkered down in the box because the chickadees and bluejays are relentless in their harassment, if it is a female sitting on eggs or maybe it left. But I was out moving logs from the wood pile yesterday and happen to glance up in a tree next to the one that holds the box and I found another owl, sitting in the ivy.

I’m hoping they are a pair and the one in the ivy is the male. He’ll feed her through the night as she incubates the eggs. I may try to scope them out tonight since it is supposed to be clear and try to watch the action. Will keep you all posted. Stay tuned. Please comment so I know someone is reading this.
