Long-eared Owl in Loch Sheldrake 12/18/13

This afternoon I received a call from Kathy Scullion informing me that there is a LONG-EARED OWL in Loch Sheldrake. The bird initially was spotted when it hit a window while being mobbed by crows. The bird was uninjured and flew off to a nearby tree. An acquaintance of Kathy’s let her know of its presence and she saw it and called a number of people so we could see it too. Arlene Borko and I arrived moments apart and had great looks at this first county bird for both of us. It was especially rewarding to see such a great bird in the county and it was a milestone for me, my 275th species in Sullivan County. Thank you Kathy for getting the word out, it is greatly appreciated!

    John,
    How does one get on your ‘please let me know’ list. I’m very interested in a Snowy Owl, a lifer for me! Thanks.
