Hi Jersey Birders, Getting out early this am proved very productive. I was rewarded with Tyto Alba walnutis (Barn Owl) roosting in a cavity. This subspecies has yet to be fully described but it's very close to status. It is a diminutive sub-species showing rich brown hues through-out it plumage's. It also sports the characteristic "heart" shaped face likes it's big sister (Tyto Alba). Although I have seen dried specimens, this is my life bird! I wish I could share it's roost site but....... pics on Flickr https://www.flickr.com/photos/shearh2o/41156142581/in/dateposted-public/ Good Birding, Harvey Tomlinson Del Haven, NJ
