I am a stalker of AgriLife guru Mike Merchant. He posted this link and thoroughly enjoyed it. BTW he started his master naturalist journey through BPTMN!
Last year about this same time (late June), I wrote an article entitled Screech Owls in Suburbia describing our (their) success in raising four chicks. This year we, 2020, had another pair but with quite different results. All material, from this year and last, including 98+ videos for 2020, is available as links from http://crcamp.com/owls.
Here’s my latest project. I got the idea from the North Texas Gardner’s Facebook page. We just had foundation work done along this barren side of the house that’s always been a messy storage area for miscellaneous stuff. It’s always had drainage issues from the downspout to the right, plus my neighbor told me it floods his yard every time it rains.
With us all hunkered down at home, there has been a worldwide spike in eBird.org observations by citizen scientists. If you’re one of those staying home with more time to gaze out the window, wander in the yard, or play in the garden, consider starting your own list of yard birds and contribute to the eBird database of avian observations.
