Dave, Marty Mau and I heard the LONG-EARED OWL on Friday night, Sep 9 around 9 PM along the wooded section of Van Dyne Spoor Rd, just west of the Sandhill Crane Unit Marsh area. In fact, we had a quartet of owls along this stretch, with BARRED, EASTERN SCREECH, and NORTHERN SAW-WHET all calling at the same time. The latter 3 were calling from the south side of the road, with the Screech calling to our west, the Saw-whet calling almost directly in front of us, and the Barred calling to the east. The LONG-EARED OWL called 3 times from the north side of the road, and from an area closer to the marsh.
I suspect this will be a popular area to visit during next year's Muckrace.

If anyone can tell me who observed either species, the location, and which date (Friday evening 9 September, or Saturday 10 September), I would be most grateful. --Dave Nutter -- Cayugabirds-L List Info: Welcome and Basics Rules and Information Subscribe, Configuration and Leave Archives: The Mail Archive Surfbirds BirdingOnThe.Net Please submit your observations to eBird! -- -- Cayugabirds-L List Info: http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsWELCOME http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsRULES http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsSubscribeConfigurationLeave.htm ARCHIVES: 1) http://email@example.com/maillist.html 2) http://www.surfbirds.com/birdingmail/Group/Cayugabirds 3) http://birdingonthe.net/mailinglists/CAYU.html Please submit your observations to eBird: http://ebird.org/content/ebird/ --
