Western Screech Owl

Once combined with Eastern Screech-owl, this species was accorded full species status in 1981. Western Screech-Owl thrives in varied habitats, from humid coastal forests to southwestern deserts. Where ranges meet in the Great Plains, screech-owls are best distinguished by voice. Western varies greatly in size and plumage; as many as 18 sub-species have been recognized.

VOICE Distinct pure, high, crescendo poo notes that accelerate like a bouncing ball coming to rest; tremolo like Eastern, often broken in middle.

My goal is to get my name out there among the vast ocean of Natural photographers. To be known for my skill with a Point & Shoot~

My images are not photo shopped. They have only been adjusted with basic sharpening, contrasting & saturation techniques. I believe that in order to appreciate Nature, you have to capture it as it is, naturally.

    Awesome capture Kim! Those eyes are so different than any owl I’ve seen before.

  • He was so alert, that I thought I wasn’t going to get a decent eye contact from him. You should see how many blurry images I had…lol!
