That is a screech owl,i have since closed of the eve where he was,but i built a little box for him and hung it under the eve,he has returned every night since this pic was taken.I always knew these little guys were tame,but this guy is something else,he will land 3 ft from you and just sit there and stare at you!

Hmmmmm, maybe I was wrong and he's looking for another 15 minutes of fame? Another Kodak moment, perhaps? LOL

He's so beautiful. We haven't seen or heard owls in this area for years Way too urban I'm afraid.

Default Owl list in my barn

My barn hosted a Barn owl all last Winter, no show this year.
Great-horned most of the year, like to perch on electric poles on either side of the barn.
Western Screech usually only shows on snowy days and nights. We catch snow from Chiricahua Peak 9795 ft 5 miles West.
2007 Christmas count had 30+ long ears on the property West of me. I see them leave their roosts to hunt the valley.

When you are viewing and copying the photos onto your computer, you should be able to delete them at that time, in addition to whatever delete options are built into the camera.

This winter a Snowy Owl got stuck in church basement after entering thru a vent. It was taken to a rescue/rehab and before long, was he was released! Now we're on the lookout for Snowys!
