I arrived at Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge in New York around 6:30am. The weather wasn't the greatest. After about 4 hours of starring at this box, the sun came out and this lady finally popped her head up. She then jumped up in the hole and started calling and dancing. My finger never left the trigger. This is my 8th species of owl this season and now completes the list.
If you want to see and capture a Barn owl, now is the time. The map will get you close to the bird blind you have to sit in to see the owl. This is the only way.
