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.
