there's a long yeared owls' roost right in town. it's in a relatively quiet neighbourhood (no trucks and buses but pedestrians and cars are regular). they've been going to those conifer trees for years now and nothing seems to deter them. apparently they have even stuck it out while major construction work has been going on just across the street from where they roost. not a lot of people know about them tho - they are not really obvious to spot ( u have to crane yr neck uo 2 see them and most passers by dont do that habitually).
so it's mostly students of ornithology who go to stare up at them with binoculars a few times per winter that disturb them. really beauiful creatures (the owls, not the students).
