Seasonal Observations: Barred Owls

Our man on the binoculars, John Tschopp, shares this report with local bird-watchers:

With the big heat over, we get to see some bird activity again. The last of the Hummingbirds are packing up for the trip South. The Canada Geese practice flying in formation. Many birds are feasting on Mountain Ash berries.

One morning I kept an eye an the bush: Crows, Robins, Cedar Waxwings, Western Tanagers, Purple Finches, Spotted Towhees, Redbreasted Sapsuckers, Steller’s Jays and others.

Craig Pelley from Poole Creek kept telling me during the summer about owls hooting in his back yard. Recently he took some nice pictures of a family of Barred Owls. Thank you Craig.
