Starting a little after sunset 5:19pm-ish, many screeches & deets heard.
A sneaky owl flew by 2:34am eluding the paparowlzzi. Screeches heard closer & closer 3:01am. An Owl did a touch & go roof-stack landing 3:58, circled around, landed on left most corner of PG, stayed looking around till 2nd owl landed on PG 4:32am.
(was this a treat handoff or just a simple form of billing midair)
They both gently fell to the ground.
Flybys spotted after that 4:35, 5:07 & 5:28am followed by a possible landing out of camera view in the branches shown on BEV cam.
Join us tonight for Spot the Owl & win yourself a Golden Hork Ticket.
NOTE : During courting, males may circle near the nest tree, giving short screeches and chattering calls.
Courtship begins with display flights by males which are accompanied by advertising calls and chasing the female.
Male Barn Owls also exhibit a special courtship behavior known as “moth flight.”
During this ritual, the male hovers in front of a perched female to display the distinctive white areas on its chest and belly.
This is when males are most vocal..
