I live in the middle of town but we have a huge old maple tree in our back yard and others in our neighbors yards as well.

I think the owls are starting to get 'twitterpated' as I was awakened by three of them the other night competing in a hooting contest.

One was in our tree, about 10 yards from our bedroom window, one across the street and another off in the distance.

They seemed to be competing for each others attention, and it was neat to hear and see them, I went to the window and was watching the one, he was huge. Went to get my red coyote light to light him up a bit, and when I came back to the window he saw me move and took off.

Spring is in the air...
