Wing Man-my fellow birding buddy-had contact with a fellow from Pulaski County who had great interest, and frankly skill, in being able to identify a wide range of birds regardless of good visuals. Sounded like the man for the job since we never have gotten a good solid look at our owls with enough daylight. So our expert came to Sycamore Hill one night and sure enough....our pair of owls were here. But was he able to confirm their identity?
So he suggested setting up a trail cam on a post near another fence post that the owls seemed to enjoy perching on and hunting from. I figured why not at this point. I had already crossed into the deep end. So he and his son came back later that week to set up the camera....
|Setting up the trailcam|
What we had hoped to see:
|Barn Owl on post|
|Very inquisitive Bluebird|
|Red Tailed Hawk|
|One of about 100 pictures of Crows|
|Disgusted and taking down the trailcam|
