August 19th, 2007 · 1 Comment · owls, Radnor Lake

The only notable experience on today’s hike at Radnor Lake was a truly close encounter with a large Barred Owl.  The only time I have been closer to an owl was two months ago: Kelly and I tread into the presence of three owls, presumably juveniles, but it was too dark to see them clearly. […]
