Sycamore of Life

barred owl juvenile

The sycamore tree in my yard is known for coughing up baby animals: various young squirrels, owls, ducks and even bats have fallen from its branches. This barred owl juvenile fell from the tree earlier this spring. It was placed on the other side of the fence underneath the same tree, and it was gone several hours later.

eastern red bat juvenile

This juvenile bat, which I believe to be an Eastern red bat, was found at the base of the sycamore hissing at curious cats. We placed it in this small maple tree away from felines, and by morning, it had gone.
