Although not up here at the moment, I thought you might be interested in the
increase of barn owls down in the flatland. Cherie

Friday morning's Nature Almanac (KGNU radio, 8:10 a.m.) features a visit to
a barn owl nest site in northern Boulder County. We now know of 5 or 6 barn
owl nests this summer, the highest number ever documented in Boulder County.
These owls are listed as "rare" on the Boulder County Avian Species of
Special Concern list, and they weren't even documented in Boulder County
until 1937. It appears they may be increasing in number, especially since
four of our sites are within a 10-square-mile area south of Hygiene and
north of Boulder Reservoir. So keep your ears open for those loud hisses and
rattles. Steve
