More Surprises from our Texas Barn Owls

At 9:52 P.M. September 12 we saw the return of the adult female, shortly followed by the male. The female was vocalizing loudly and proceeded to lie down as the male entered the nest box. The male then attempted to mount the female, but she refused him and instead continued to bill fence with him and vocalize loudly. The male then departed after a few minutes leaving the female. She then stayed in the nest box for around 2 hours. In the early hours of the morning, September 13, we saw the female return to inspect the box at 5:39 A.M. and again at 5:58 A.M. What do you think, could we see a second brood this late in the year? Only time will tell.
