Owl Adventures 2001

It's been an unusually quiet winter with only a few visits by the owls. It is, however, apparent that both Ward and June remain in the territory and quite possible that they will nest this year. Ward is shown here on one of the rare occasions when he entered the nest to take refuge from pursuing crows. I attribute the lack of activity in this part of their territory to the heavy snow cover which has lingered for more than sixty days. They prefer the parts of their territory that are dominated by evergreens when there is snow on the ground. Ward also made a nest inspection visit on Feb 14th, and I've heard June calling in the distance a couple of times. If they are to nest, activity should pick up significantly by mid-March.

OwlCam will again follow their adventures this year.

Tip For AOL Subscribers: The AOL browser's default compression setting ruins the OwlCam pictures. To fix this, select: Settings-Preferences-Internet Properties-Web Graphics, and be sure that "Never Compress Graphics" is selected. Because my pictures, and most others, are already compressed, you will only increase download times slightly and will improve picture quality dramatically.
