    Great show.
    Observations from northwest corner of Middle Island:
    March 26 heard a Western Screech Owl. Reviewing my notes from last year, we heard one the same day in 2011. My wife suggests this means even the owls observe leap year.

    March 30 and 31 saw a lone California Sea Lion feeding on herring or herring eggs. It appeared to “stand on its head” in one spot, just the hind flippers showing above water. I didn’t time it, but it was more than a few seconds and less than a minute each time. Observed this several times on both days.

    Thanks for the observations Scott! It is funny that you heard the screech owl on the same date two years in a row. I find myself wondering how many of the smaller islands host screech owls – I’ve heard reports from Galankin and Middle Island now. I also seem to remember hearing about a Northern Saw-whet on Peisar Island, but I’m not sure about that.

    I was out around Middle Island on the Whalefest FoodWeb fundraising cruise last Saturday – it was fun to see the herring spawning again. Did not notice the California Sea Lion – though I did hear a report of one seen from Mosquito Cove month ago – wonder if it’s the same one? Was the one you saw particularly noisy? I’ve heard that California Sea Lions seem to be more vocal than our regulars.

    Saw a Short-eared Owl today (10/21) @ 8 a.m. on Cannon Island Drive. Flew from a rock on the causeway to some trees by Eagle Way.

    Nice! I’ve still not managed to see one of those, though they seem to move through most years in small numbers. Not a lot of their preferred habitat around town though. Thanks for the report!
