Ward and June were unusually quiet for most of the winter. While I heard Ward hooting on several occasions, the absence of nest inspection visits leads me to believe that June wandered out of the area in search of better hunting. It was a highly unusual winter with record warmth through mid-January followed by snow and bitter cold. This made life extremely difficult for owls with record numbers forced into populated areas in search of food. I received many reports of barred owls "camping out" at bird feeders in search of the rodents that are attracted by spilled seed. One barred owl has even spent the winter in a busy park in downtown Boston. Ward and June, however, came through it in good shape and appear to be ready to start a family.
