Raven at UNCC; nesting Barred Owls


A couple of months ago I was pretty sure I saw a Raven fly across the
UNC-Charlotte campus. A week or so ago I definitely saw a Raven and heard it
give its characteristic gurgling call. Was it just passing through?
Apparently so, as I have not otherwise seen them on campus. 

During the past two weeks 4 of our 6 tagged rural female owls have started
incubating. I recently found one new nest that is 600 meters from another
nest. It'll be neat to see just how tightly they can pack into suburban vs.
unmodified habitat.
