Tonight as the sun was setting I went out on the deck to enjoy the view and heard a Barred Owl. The call of the Barred Owl in a familiar sound in Oakwood. I convinced Gunnar to come out to listen. He grabbed his new camera and we started walking down our street. I thought it was blocks away. He was right ,it was close, only a few houses down. The Crows helped in locating it and hassled the owl out in the open. Good to be in Oakwood in the Spring. We are awaiting the Warbler Migration but have seen Yellow-rumps and Kinglets as of this weekend.
