Anyway, just wanted to let you know why it went dark.
Thank you for the egg pledges or flat donations in celebration of the new clutch!I think they wound up nesting in a cavity somewhere a few hundred yards south of it.Well, at least lately the adults have been flying around calling like crazy so I suspect there are fledglings out.In the meantime, some European Honeybees rediscovered the box and apparently are deciding to call it home again. Nonetheless, those of you who pledged will still get a chance to guess a species. Again, I’ll shortly be emailing the link to do this as well as other Birdathon followup.Check out this 2 min clip from around 3PM on May 23rd of how fast they got to work. Pete 5/15/17 Wynne kindly (and gently) let me now that Steve mentioned the 100th Birdtahon species in his recap. Pete 05/14/17 Hmmmm, it appears the LED’s that provide the night time infrared view of the cavity are no longer working. Pete 4/21/16 I think you all know that I don’t often make a pitch for support.This year I will accept 50 reservations @ 0 per person. The way it will work is that you can sign up for the first or second session. Both sessions – Lunch 1PM-2PM Both sessions – Band the Barn Owl chicks 2PM-3PM Session 1 departs, Session 2 Owl biology talk with at least one live owl from the Orange County Bird of Prey Center.
