Today I took the subway up to 102 to look for the screech owl. Someone told me "exactly" where to find her, so I figured, hey, why not take a look around. Even knowing where to look it's no easy to task to find an owl, and I did not do so well. But when I was taking a picture of a chickadee, someone asked me if I had seen her. I said I was looking for her, but no, I didn't even know what tree she was usually in. The directions I got seemed to apply to about a zillion trees. She was kind enough to show me her usual spot, which was empty! Oh well, no owl. I started walking down towards the reservoir.
At the reservoir this pair of double crested cormorants was swimming around in formation for quite some time. It was great to see them!
By the stream near stone benchlet I saw this eastern phoebe! I'm pretty sure. Everyone is reporting them excitedly, so, it's likely.
