Owl Adventures 2002

Ward and June remain in their territory, but have not visited the nest box since early January. Hunting conditions have been ideal for the owls this winter with very little snowfall  to muffle the footsteps of their prey. As a result, there has been little need for daytime hunting and few daytime sightings. Ward is shown here on January 15th when a rare snowstorm had him eyeing the squirrels that were attracted by the spilled seed under a bird feeder. After watching patiently for several hours, he made a graceful 100-foot glide to pounce on one of the squirrels and then flew back into the woods to enjoy a good meal. I've not heard from June for almost  two months, and assume that she has found better hunting elsewhere in the territory. If they are going to nest this year, activity should pick up significantly by mid-March.

OwlCam will again follow their adventures this year.
