Saw-Whet Owl Sighting
[previous] :: [next]
Recently I went for a walk here in Toronto, Ontario, in one of our local parks, and by chance, I spotted a Northern Saw-Whet Owl at rest in the thick brush.
I have never seen an owl in the wild before, and certainly not one in such close proximity. We have frequented this park for years, and this is the first time we were lucky enough to catch sight of one.
I had inadvertently startled the little owl from a neighboring perch, and it flew and landed right in front of my husband, Bob.
I was absolutely thrilled at the chance to observe this cute little owl at very close range. The owl was totally at ease with our picture taking.
If you would like to see some great video footage of this Saw-Whet Owl, along with more pictures, we have them posted at http://frametoframe.ca/photo-essay-northern-saw-whet-owl-sighting

Many birds especially raptors migrate or spend the winter unobserved in cities I have heard Cooper's Hawks near my house in Berkeley CA in October. One good way to find them or be ware odd their presence is by sound. Listen to recordings of hawks and owls and become familiar with their sounds. Then listen for sounds that are different than usual in your neighborhood and use your two ears as locators to find them
