They're back!  I arrived and found one SEOW about a half mile back sitting on the edge of a corn field.  Then I drove up to the roosting area and got out of my van and went to the back and put on some rubber boots.  When I shut the rear doors about 25 owls got up to fly.  I had a total of 34 tonight.  This is day 154 for SEOW here at Peabody.  I paced off the size of the field they are in and it  measures 700' X 800', that makes an area of about 12.8 acres.  Of course the owls are congregating in the center of the field.  Most of them flew east but some flew out over the burned area and didn't stay long.
