"This event is great, especially for kids!"

060611 Several days before we visited Silverwood Park, Christine, a naturalist, of Eloise Butler Wildflower Garden and Bird Sanctuary had spotted Great Horned Owls fledging here at Silverwood Park. That's why we went there, Silverwood Park. Well, we were unfortunate to spot the great horned owls on June 11, 2006. Chris of Silverwood Park (then, and if we're not mistaken, now he works at Elm Creek Park Reserve & Cleary Lake Regional Park*) said to us, "They are probably still around here. You should have come earlier to see great horned owls." He kindly showed us a Northern Flicker's nest by the shelter. We've never seen a Northern Flicker's nest before. It was so cool! "Chris, Thanks so much for showing us the nest." We'll post some pix of the nest later.

Note that Silverwood Park has a very nice visitor center, which was built about a year ago. 110117
