Stoney Creek (Wintergreen) 2/20/10

Alice gave me an owl box a couple of years ago that I put up at the back of our yard. Last year we had Bluebirds nesting in it, and more Bluebirds were looking at it a couple of weeks ago.

Today I looked out through our window and guess what was poking its head out - sure looks like a red-morph Eastern Screech-Owl. I walked outside with my camera trying to get a closer shot, but it either went back inside the box or flew away. I will keep a close eye out on that box now.
