I live in the Youngstown subdivision in Ennismore, just up from the causeway. I was reading your recent list of birds in the area on your annual bird count. You noted that no Barred Owls were seen during the count. About two weeks ago now, I saw a Barred Owl fly into a tree behind my backyard which, runs down to Chemong Lake. He stayed on that branch for about 45 minutes.
