'A very related subject: Is there is any follow-up info, on that Barred Owl irruption this past winter? For example, were the high number of daylight Barred Owl sightings and spikes in admissions to re-habbers, indicative of increased morbidity/mortality? Are there going to be fewer successful breeding Barred Owls in parts of the Northeastern US, this Spring? Steve MayoBethany, CT

We usually are overrun by chipmunks but have had none this year. I asked a biologist. He thought that many small mammals had a tough winter. White-footed mice are also less in numbers. However, I’m sure the chipmunk population will rebound as they can produce two or more litters this summer.
