|The moon through the trees|
At several points along the trail we stopped to call for owls - Eastern Screech, Barred, and Great Horned. We were successful at calling in a pair of Barred Owls along the Chippewa River. The first owl just swooped around overhead, but the second landed in a tree nearly overhead. When we shined a light on it there were several cries of amazement. Unfortunately I was unable to get a good photograph of it while shining a flashlight at the same time.

After the walk, a small group stayed around to drink hot chocolate and talk. There is already talk of schedule a spring moonlit walk to listen for frogs and we have a moth outing scheduled for July.
