Barred Owl Parenting
The Barred owl family that claims Bill's Woods as its home has endeared itself to many Preserve visitors. Glenda Denniston, who spends a lot of time in these woods, reported today: "This Barred owl was just sitting quietly on the ground in Bills Woods two days ago. The Wood thrushes were protesting noisily, which is what called it to my attention. After a while it flew up to the top of a nearby tree. I presume the two baby owlets were nearby, but I didn’t see them."
