Saw whet Owl - Outdoors Niagara
|Here's a photo of a Saw-whet Owl that was taken in the
Town of Porter, Niagara County N.Y. by Kaitlyn Gillis.
This is a rare sighting. Saw-whet owls are strictly nocturnal and seldom observed. Most bird watchers consider seeing one a "once in a lifetime" experience. Few people ever see a live saw-whet owl.
The Northern Saw-whet owl has a round head, yellow eyes and a black bill.
7 to 8 inches long, and weighs 3 to 4 ounces.
