Superb Owl Pre-game

Special B&B Agent Traci reported this Northern Saw-whet snoozing away next to a busy throughway and I was on my way.

This is the most common and smallest owl species on the eastern half of the U.S. The 1980-85 NY state breeding bird survey had them in Queens and Nassau counties, but the second edition 2000-2005 did not–but, then, they can be elusive. You know this can’t be the only one in Brooklyn this winter.
