A Visitor

This owl was found roosting in Paul Grim’s shop. He asked Jake Jakabosky for help in identification. Jake replied:
“I’m sure it is a Saw-whet.  I’m going by the brown streaks on its side (not brown with small spots).  Also its beak is dark instead of gray and it has thin streaks instead of spots on the forehead. Saw-whets have an inquisitive look to their face while Pygmy owls have a “fierce” look to them.  Saw-whets tend to “freeze” when they think they are in danger.”
