Miss Chestnuts

Your children are SO lucky to have parents who seek out these experiences for and with them. They'll remember these times the rest of their lives...

The screech owl is a little guy, right? We saw one sitting on the electric lines by the barn late one very cold winter afternoon. He looked so cold and hungry but I think he was well positioned for mouse hunting.

Thanks, Terry! The Eastern Screech-Owl is a year-round resident in these parts. I used to hear them outside the kitchen door at my grandparents' home Windrock by the sea but it has been years since I've had that pleasure. I almost never see them. My mother made an extraordinary quilt a couple of years ago of a red-morph Screech-owl which I blogged about here: http://greensleeves.typepad.com/berkshires/2006/10/an_artist_in_fa.html

I should have used it to illustrate this post. I'll do so now.

Tim, What a pleasant report of your outing and of your quest to find salamanders. Please keep us posted on your attempts. Spring has "sprung" here in Northeast Mississippi --- reports of first-of-the-season Hummingbirds just to our west today but none here yet that have shown themselves at my feeder.

Is your screech owl migratory to your parts or a resident?
