Owl Woods • April 12

Northern Saw-whet Owl. I got to the Woods yesterday afternoon just as the rain was stopping. Another team member was there and shared with me that they had spotted a Long-eared Owl and a Northern Saw-whet Owl. This was their second visit to the Woods that day and the long-ear had since relocated, but the saw-whet was still there. This was a tough one photographically. I believe the torso of the owl is facing forward in this picture and its head is turned and tucked into its right shoulder. I found no way to see its face while maintaining a respectful distance, so I settled for this shot.
