Another great morning down at the woods. Got there just before sunlight, so I stopped to scan the bay as the sun came up. All sorts of activity on the bay, Mute swans everywhere, mergansers, long tail ducks, and pretty much right under my feet were 2 male and 2 female wood ducks.
Well the sun finally got high enough to give that deception of being warm, so I headed in.
Located 2 Saw Whets in the classroom area, and 2 more further down the boardwalk.
Walking further down the trail, I spotted a long ear. I went in closer to the tree, and spotted 1 more long ear just a branch away from the other. Decided to go back out to the trail and get on the other side to take advantage of the sun, and what do I see ? A 3rd Long Ear. All three in the same tree, just a few branches apart. Awesome morning, now I can go to bed.
Here's a couple pictures of the Owls. I'll photoshop them up after some sleep. Too tired......eyes blurry......must sleep.......
