Meet the Tiny Northern Saw-whet Owl

The Northern Saw-whet owl is one of the most common owls found in Maine. It was only after a blog visitor suggested I make a pattern for this owl that I read more about them. After listening to the call sounds on AllAboutBirds.org, I’m certain that we have a Northern Saw-whet in the vicinity. The nighttime sounds I’ve discounted as a startled bird are really this cute little owl.

    Thanks for this one! Our local owl bander in Colorado is about to break last year’s record of banding saw-whets for the year. We have been so lucky to see these awesome owls up close and personal. We’ll be making a felt version soon.

    Hi there. Just reading your blog posting about how the Northern Saw-whet owl is one of the most common owls found in Maine, and I love your felt Saw-Whet Owl. I live way north of you in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and this past Friday, my wife and I came upon an adult Saw-Whet Owl out in the bush. This was the first time as birders that we had ever seen a Saw-Whet Owl. Fortunately, we had our camera with us and got some good pictures and video. We have posted them for anyone interested at: http://frametoframe.ca/photo-essay-northern-saw-whet-owl-sighting
