From a friend:
i was in suburban st louis over the weekend.  about dusk on sunday evening i 
heard an owl call twice, about a minute apart.  its call was just the eighth 
note of a barred owl's call.  do you suppose it was a barred owl?

a couple of minutes later the owl flew closer and perched about 30 feet 
above the ground in a tree about 50 feet away.  a couple of minutes after 
that it was joined by a second owl perching a foot away from the first one. 
over the course of the next few minutes they touched beaks several times in 
a maneuver that looked like it might have been food sharing.  (i'll avoid 
characterizing it as kissing.)  do adult owls share food?

Thanks,
Jill DeWitt
