Subject: [cobirds] El Paso county Colorado Springs Western screech owl
There is a Western screech owl in the Bear Creek dog park in Colorado
Springs that is very viewable. It is located at the western end of the
creek (north side of creek) just before the chain link fence crosses the
creek. There is a lot of foot traffic from dog walkers going under the tree
it is in and lots of folks getting close and taking cellphone pictures, the
owl does not seem to care. It has been there since at least Thanksgiving
according to some of the dog walkers I talked to.

Lucy Luck reported and posted pictures of this owl that she thought was a
snowy owl on ebird on Dec 2. Her map coordinates did not come out quite
right but a woman walking her dogs who had seen the owl took the time to
show me exactly where it was.

Very hard to get good pictures due to lots of tall brush in this area.
