Skyward Gaze

I was browsing through some of my photos from 2009 and was drawn back to the day I had a great photoshoot with a bunch of owls. This was definitely my favourite owl of the day.

 

The Northern Saw-whet Owl is a miniature owl native to North America.

 

Adults are 18 cm long with a 43 cm wingspan (about the size of a pop can). The Northern Saw-Whet Owl has a round, light, grey face with brown streaks; they also have a dark beak and yellow eyes. The underparts are pale with dark streaks; the upper parts are brown with white spots.
