I wonder if signs at Fuller Park would help. I live near here and could contact my councilmember if that would be helpful.

I see way too many photos of these owls-and other birds- who are obviously in stress/defense mode and people oooh and aaahhh at the photos of an 'animated' bird -no it is scared and trying to defend it's life, family, and home.

Perhaps it’s best to remove the nesting tree, as these poor creatures are harassed incessantly each year by the locals. I stopped photographing them two years ago because it attracted too much attention. What a shame if this has happened. The nest was splashed all over social media.
