Hi Folks-

Got an owl on my trailcam! Pretty cool.

I'm thinking Saw-whet...what do you think? He's on the left.

Hard to judge its size without a reference.  Do you know the size of anything in the photo?

Obviously a small owl, no more than 6" or 7".  The head doesn't look like it has an Eastern Screech's tufts.  Based only on that, I'll go with Northern Saw-Whet.

Cool little sucker.

Tufts go up or down with Eastern Screech. I don''t think  not seeing that eliminates that one.

Well....the eyes look awfully close together for a Screech, and the facial disc is so circular, that I'm inclined to think Saw-whet.

Any more thoughts?
