Screech Owls

Tough to find but always present and with their trilling calls often heard at night, the screech owl is a small, nocturnal owl that makes its’ home in small tree cavities. During much of the day you can observe them sitting in the sun waiting to head out for the evening hunt and relaxing. They blend into their surroundings well and being so small makes it hard to see them even when searching for them, which helps keep predators, bigger owls, or people from bothering them.
