Eastern Screech-Owl - Carl & Rose Mary Silvestri

Eastern Screech-Owl – Carl & Rose Mary Silvestri

On Tuesday February11, my wife & I were having lunch, when she noticed a brown and white feathered creature sitting on our garland outside the kitchen window. We investigated and to our surprise it was an Eastern Screech-Owl. I took a number of pictures, which I’m sending you. We had never seen an owl before, especially this close.Our visitor stayed the day and left at 5:40. What a pleasant surprise and gift.
