Tom Wuenschell (31 May 2018) - [Murray's Hill Trail] - Flammulated Owl. This second nest box is located about 675 feet from the first one that had the juvenile saw-whet in it. In the same closed-canopy mature Bigtooth maple forest. Originally thought this box was not occupied. When I was extending the telescoping stepladder at the base of the tree the owl popped its head out. Got a couple quick pics and the owl flew to an adjacent tree. I quickly photographed the eggs and then quickly and quietly left the area. During this time the adult was making some kind of low pitched harsh barking sound.
