Red Faced Screech Owl
Today I co-led an owl prowl with John Galluzzo for the the Mass Audubon Society. We went to Duxbury Beach to look for snowy and short eared owls. Instead we saw seals, a razorbill, long tailed ducks, red breasted merganzers, eiders and loons among others. On the return trip in Marshfield, we saw a red faced screech owl. This owl was very calm and didn't mind posing for a photo! I have tried photographing screech owls before with little success. They are often very skiddish. It was a thrill to spend some time with this owl!
