Sightings for Friday January 8th

Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue, Morgan Arboretum
In the Arbo this morning, as our group was moving into the woods on the Main Trail, escorted by our usual complement of crows, a Barred Owl (Chouette rayée) suddenly swooped in and peered down at us for several minutes.

It was sharing the tree with one crow, who eyed the owl carefully but didn't say a word until the owl flew off towards Chalet Pruche. As soon as the owl was gone, needless to say, it started to caw to its friends. - B. McFarlane
