Yesterday about lunchtime there was an adult scissortailed flycatcher feeding a juvenile on the guy wires of the tower where the nest apparently had been, but the nest is apparently gone. I saw only a strand of possible nesting material hanging from the end of the crossarm.
A few months ago there was a barred owl "trapped" in the Ken's Foods warehouse that one passes as one proceeds through the industrial park to reach the flycatcher nest site. After several days, a falconer was able to call the owl out. Maybe Ken's menu includes some rodents we'd rather not know about.
