A cozy home

closePaul Karner, a federal bander that works with the folks at Martins Creek, got a picture of an eastern screech owl taking up residence in one of the wood duck boxes. Paul actually caught a female in the box and thinks she was ready to lay eggs. Hopefully she’ll stick around to add to our nursery count!

There are currently four eggs in the peregrine falcon nest, three pairs of nesting osprey, at least two pair of nesting kestrels and two active red tail hawk nests at Martins Creek.
