Good news, bad news, folks. The bad news is Bill went back to the River
Rd., Orleans to find those barn owls, this time with scope in tow. Several
others did the same. There was some question at first but it was later
determined the owls are definitely short-eared owls. The good news:
they're both still there. Lesson learned: bring the scope every time!
