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!
