Great Horned Owl – West Boxford

February 27, 2015 in Great Horned Owl

The nesting Great Horned owl has returned again to the Carter Field Reservation in West Boxford.  The Owl is found in the middle of a Great Blue Heron Rookery located in a dead tree swamp.  The number of nesting Herons in the rookery has been reduced considerably in the last few years due to winter storms and other factors.  The bast vantage point may be from the trail off of Bradford Street.
