Northern Saw-Whet Owl (Aegolius acadicus)
Must See Large Another injured rescued bird now at the Hawk Creek sanctuary
Their eyes do not move so they must turn their heads to see in other directions.
Regarding the background - that will be a good project for when I am more accomplished with Photoshop than I am now! :-) Pic taken at a Open House & Festival at the Hawk Creek Rehab & Sanctuary so this is what I got - a wonderful closeup pic with somewhat distracting background.
