In Cambridge you expect to find night owls in Harvard Square, but the city is home to several other owl species. There is an Eastern Screech Owl that lives above a foot path traveled by hundreds of joggers and dog walkers with their dogs each day on the shore of Fresh Pond.
Since I was so close, I visited Mount Auburn Cemetery to see if I could get some more good photos of the Great Horned Owl. Unfortunately today it was hid deep in the branches.
So I started to investigate the wildlife in the rest of the cemetery. A Red Tail Hawk flew right in front of the car and perched in a nearby tree.
Down by the bird feeder I was able to get a few photos of typcial feeder birds & a Brown Creeper.
