Barn Owl Hill expands
So it is a year since we named a local spot Barn Owl Hill. Since then we have watched as two barns held nursing adults with young and then they fledged and now we wonder just how many are in the area.
How large an area will a single barn owl hunt? We've seen quite a few since January, 1st. Today we had to abandon the car because of snow and hike up B.O. hill then later, on our way back from Inn at Whitewell, we spied a beautiful Barn Owl hunting and slammed into a snowy bank.
Watched her/him hunt for a long while and as light failed managed to get a few shots off.
