2 nights ago, at 10:30 p.m. a Barn Owl flew over and let out a distinctive shriek - must be one of the recently-fledged juveniles from Magnuson.

Yesterday, midday, while involved in a cleaning project indoors, I happened to look out an open door to the big (very much alive) cherry tree and caught sight of a Pileated Woodpecker checking out the tree trunk(s) - a minute later, it was off down the street, calling from another tree or phone pole. That made the cleaning worthwhile !

And, I think, though I'm not positive, I heard a couple of "whits" of a Swainson's Thrush when I was out in the backyard yesterday - never saw the 'whitter', though.
