      I, too, think this little owl has amazing eyes!
      Just as it was becoming light out at dawn, I heard a soft hooting - one that I'd never heard before. When I checked out what owl made it, I found it was the flammulated owl so had to check out photos of it on Flickr. Gave me quite a thrill to hear this little owl in our area & hope they're becoming more common here.
