The talk of the town today was certainly the Great Gray Owl, which made an appearance in Burlington yesterday, and which Larry was lucky enough to see. This is, however, a sign of the troubled times faced by owls after a long winter. NBNC has been receiving calls regularly about dead or sickly owls. Fortunately, the harshness of winter is coming to an end.
Other bird sightings made by Larry yesterday include a Killdeer near Warren, a Turkey Vulture near the town of Middlesex, a Barred Owl in Wocester, and a Northern Shrike on Rt. 12 between Wocester and the Nature Center.
