Most of these owls migrate but a few stick around through the winter. They are usually difficult to find, spending the day tucked close to the trunk of a dense evergreen where branches make a clean shot all but impossible. After finding the bird I quickly took a few photos then left it alone.

During the day, saw-whet owls hide in the trees and don't move. Getting out in the open during the day would mean lots of trouble for these birds! This one spent the winter at Tommy Thompson Park in Toronto.

Although they are at Reifel most winters, they are hard to see. This sighting was a lifer for me.

This pair is a real favorite with children. It is from a bird center in St Jude, outside of St Hyacinthe.
