A few days ago we saw a medium sized owl fly out from the trees, actually quite a familiar sight for us. It was a Long-eared Owl! The past two years a pair has come back to our yard, and last year they nested right in our forest!
This is the third year they have come back, and it's pretty exciting! Now to see if they will nest in our yard like last year.
I've also seen the Cooper's Hawk, which has been coming back to our yard for years and years.
