Owl Woods • April 17

Strong southwest winds overnight brought in several owls to Owl Woods today. There were four Northern Saw-whet Owls reported. One flew off at some point before I arrived, but I found the other three with the kind help of several other birders in the Woods today. So, without further ado, here are the owls! :-)
