Interloping Barn Owl
In addition to their second egg hatching, an unknown Barn Owl landed on top of the nestbox and approached the entrance—the female Barn Owl watched warily from within, then chased off the interloper!
While we can't be sure this was a foreign owl, we have yet to see "our" male land on top of the box (he always approaches via the front entrance) and this is by far one of the most aggressive interactions that the female has been involved in. What do you think from her behavior?
