    Sorry to hear that it has flown away.Maybe it found another safer place? Hope it comes back next time.

    Beautiful stare. Good details in the face. The pointed beak is so nicely shaped. Thanks for sharing the update.

    This is bad news indeed .Could be that he was highly suspicious of your curiosity The owl's expression looks very reproachful indeed, as if he resents your presence Thanks for sharing .

    Nesting birds don't like too much of intrusion. I am not sure about the distance in your case and movements. In these situations better to place curtain and then discreetly observe. I see an owl at times infront of my house in bhubaneshwar. No nesting though. In Chennai, one highly religious IAS officer told me that he stopped using the washroom in his office due to a nest and he used to go to the common washroom for close to two months.

    Too much human activity can also lead to crows and cats getting to know the location. Hope the owl comes and makes a permanent home in your place.

    Cheers,
