Coffin Woods Owl

In late May our Warden's assistant, Brendan, found an owl fledgling sitting on a trail. Coffin Woods . Naturalists Al and Lois Lindberg, who reside in Blue Heron Lodge, came to its rescue. Gently nudging it off the trail back into the safety of dense underbrush, they determined it was a Great Horned Owl, about 4 months old. Its mother was crying frantically nearby. The rescue was successful, as the young owl was subsequently seen in the company of an adult. Now we have proof that Great Horned Owls nest in Coffin Woods Preserve!
