First off many thanks to Michelle Maani and Luke Hanes for mentioning this area. Michelle has had barred owls calling near her home that overlooks the greenway and Luke has seen an owl along the trail. I have been looking for a barred owl for quite a while spending a lot of time without success.

Tonight I walked the Salmon Creek trail from the west. I began about 7:40 pm and about 8:10 pm I heard a barred owl on the opposite side of the green zone. It called out once then about 8:35 pm I heard a call again could have been the same bird? From the west you need to go past the second bench to be close to where I first heard the owl. Also once it started to get dark I had a barn owl flying around saw it twice. There were several bats flying around as well and it is always cool to see them.
