Here is another little owl we saw at the owl show. This is a screech owl. I do not recall which type. He is just a little bit bigger than the Saw-whet owl I uploaded last night. Still VERY cute.
Hope you aren't getting bored with my owl pictures yet. I have three more types to upload. One of them is the awesome SNOWY owl. A very cool if high-strung bird.

Now for a few screech owl facts:

Size: Female average Length:23cm (9.2") Wingspan:56cm (22") Weight:208g (7.3oz)
Male average Length:21cm (8.2") Wingspan:54 cm (21") Weight:200 g (7oz)

Habits: A nocturnal bird, with activity beginning after sunset. Similar to the Western Screech Owl.

Voice: Males have a lower-pitched voice than females. The male's most common call (A-song) is a mellow, muted trill - each call lasts 2 to 3 seconds with about 35 notes given, and repeated at various intervals. The B-song is a descending whinny call, often given during courtship. Duets may consist of both A and B songs. Females tend to bark or hoot when defending the nest. Young "peep" for food during their first three weeks, then chatter or hum later. Fledglings demand food with a harsh "keeeerr-r-r-r". They do not call while in flight, except when alarmed.

You're having a hoot with these photos! LOL!

These are great photos - the top one looks like he's looking out his door to see what all the ruckus is about.

I just think owls are the coolest critters! They always look like they're taking in everything with those big eyes.

Cool photos, Mike!
