Omg! Thanks to all the local gardeners who have been hatching their screeches! I’m fairly certain our screech “Prin-Prin” had his family elsewhere, and by all the blogging going on, it sounds like he had a choice of many good nests.
Tonight we saw Prin-Prin or one of his brood on the hammock’s caribiner, then two more owls on the fence, making circles with their heads. Then hammock-owl flew to the other side of the yard, chasing and chased by one of the fence-owls.
When they all finished chasing, we counted four on the far fence and one in a persimmon branch near them. Five beautiful screeches at dusk! This was the best pic I could manage when one landed near a window.
