This is the time of year when I keep my windows open at night. Actually I probably won't close them until October. I am always listening for those nightjars and owls. Last night I had my first of the year CHUCK-WILLS-WIDOW singing in the distance. Actually two. This morning a BARRED OWL was acting crazy.
Yesterday (04/02/17) while in my front yard I heard an OSPREY. I jogged up to a higher spot to get a better view and saw a BALD EAGLE chasing the Osprey for several minutes about 100 yards away where there is a small lake. I didn't have my binoculars (which rarely happens) so I couldn't see what the Osprey had that the eagle so desperately wanted to steal. A pretty awesome yard bird experience.
