He’s baaaaaack! merlin the screech owl is back! last night we finally got around to taking merlin’s owl box down off it’s tree, to install a new camera looking into the box in preparation for this nesting season. this morning when we brought up the camera for the first time, there was merlin! he must’ve already been using the box, and we just got lucky not to run into him when we took it down for the camera install. so far, he doesn’t seem to mind the intrusion. 😁 🦉 we’re super excited to have this new intimate view, and fingers crossed that there will be a mate and owlets again this season! .
