60 minutes - put up a new "no swimming" sign on the north side of the lake.

We'll see if someone takes it down. - I won't be surprised if so.

Went for a walk and on the SE portion of trail that crosses driveway, we heard then saw a small owl. We did not recognize the call - it flew to a couple different branches when it noticed we had spotted it. It was only about 8-9" tall.

After referencing bird book, we see that it is either: saw-whet or Eastern screech.

UPDATE: Confirmed as saw-whet; its call does NOT sound like an Eastern screech.
