Too funny, John! I happened to check for it just yesterday too, for some
reason felt compelled to, though it had been a long time since I had. I was
able to photograph him, and he had his eyes open, as a delivery truck below
was unloading boxes for the store and making a racket. A low res photo
attached if people would like to see it.
At some point I'll try to compare this screech's markings to my photos of
the owl in there from last winter to see if anything seems to match up.
My apologies if sending an attachment is still discouraged.
