Screech Owls in Ottawa

105301 views Nature Lover May 19, 2022 Ottawa, ON Date shot: May 19, 2022

It's that time of year. May is usually the month that eastern screech owls fledge in the Ottawa area. The time may vary depending on the circumstances includng habitat disturbances, weather and availabity of food. The photo above was taken last summer when a pair of nesting screech owls at a popular location in Ottawa had a second brood. Screech owls are known to have a second go at it if the first nesting attempt is not successful. This fact is mentioned in research articles freely available online. With this knowlege, I knew to keep an eye open for a second attempt at nesting. It was successful as you can see.
