This observation comes to us from Robin Korevaar in Dallas, Texas. Robin reports that for a few years now a screech owl has frequented her front yard, sometimes alone, often with a partner. She would see them mostly at dusk and early morning, though occasionally they would be there at mid-day. Blue jays would often give away the presence of the raptor by jeering angrily at the offending bird. One year a family of screech owls frequented her bird bath at night.
