Saw-Whet Owl Sighting

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

Exquisitely beautiful photos by the way!

Thanks Paul,
I just filmed a Cooper's Hawk this afternoon, what a beautiful bird. I filmed the hawk as it eating another bird. After finishing up its meal it just chilling out for the better part of two hours up in a tree. At one point it was calling out, so I had a chance to record it sound, and also to hear its call before it flew away. Yesterday, I picked up a Bird book with an audio CD, hoping it will help me to learn the sounds of the different birds in my area. And also of course maybe help me locate more of them. I will take your advice, and try and put my ears to work, hopefully all of this will workout. thanks Bob
