NOTES: Bird gave call as I approached it on foot - sounds like adult mobbing call. I approached the bird from the vicinity of a nest box under the visitor center roof. The nest did not contain young but could have had eggs. Barn Owls were abundant in the area. I saw atleast 20 along the state road just outside the refuge. Most were perched on fence posts. Other Behaviors: Scold.
