Urban Barn Owl

Aaron Maizlish

7:44 pm: Barn Owl flying up the sidewalk and under the eaves of an apartment building at the SW corner of Gough and O’Farrell. Seen as I was driving down Gough.
Is it my imagination or is the population expanding in the city? It doesn’t seem like very many years ago that Barnies were quite rare, and now I see that there’s a bunch of eBird reports this winter in the parks. Anyway it’s cool to see it out so early in the evening, and totally unexpectedly.
