Hello Tweetsters - A friend and I are pretty sure we saw a Barn Owl
alight in a conifer at Jefferson Park Golf Course Wednesday June 23. We
watched it for maybe 30 seconds as a crow circled, but then we had to
move along in our round, as we had others behind us. When I looked back,
it had disappeared. I have been playing golf at Jefferson for more than
15 years and never seen a Barn Owl there, though I've seen many other
birds, including Bald Eagle, Red-tailed Hawk, Cooper's Hawk, Olive-sided
Flycatcher (quick-three-beers), and last October a Black-billed Magpie!

We did not get a look at the face, unfortunately, but based on size,
shape and color (light brownish upper wings and white underwing) we
could not think what else it could be than a Barn Owl.
