Very shortly after I got there this morning I clearly heard a  Screech Owl 
call about half a dozen times. It was around half a mile after the  dirt 
begins, although I don't know exactly because I only heard one series of  calls 
and it stopped before I could try to get closer. 1st one ever for me in  
the Yale Forest. 
Lots of Juvenile birds starting to appear; Robins, Towhees,  Downy and 
Yellow-bellied Sapsucker today. I am sure the Waterthrushes have  families now. 
I have heard a lot of calls in the brush, though I haven't seen  any yet. I 
saw 5 hen Turkeys in a tight group and I'm suspicious they were  
almost-grown juvies, but I have no way of knowing.
 I heard 4 different Winter Wrens today, most in a long  time. 1 was in a 
new location for this year.
