Northern Saw Whet Owl - Amherst Island, Ontario by 

When you see a Northern Saw Whet Owl (Aegolius acadius) you almost do a double take. These tiny owls are unbelievable in their exquisite detail and beauty. They are usually found in evergreen trees and are so well camouflaged it is very difficult to find them.

    a rather bizare looking bird but a lovely pic

  • Actually Jon they are very cute when seen in person, the picture does not really do it justice. They almost look like a toy bird.
