Eastern Screech-Owl

The Eastern Screech-Owl has some of mother nature's best camouflage. They are nocturnal and seldom seen during the day, but look closely at these tree branches ...   high-res

Let's look a bit closer, and here is an Eastern Screech-Owl sticking his head out of a knot hole. They come in two colors, the gray as shown here and the reddish-brown variety. They are about the size and shape of a beer can.   high-res

I got this photo of two Eastern Screech-Owls at the Winter Raptor Fest. The photo shows the two color types. They eat worms, insects and mice, and small birds.   high-res
