This Northern Saw-whet Owl was found in Silverado Canyon, Southern California. The Saw-whet Owls in Silverado Canyon are resident throughout the year although mostly only heard in the breeding season. Since it is so hard to really see size in a photo, it is just not appearent that this bird is not much bigger than a sparrow. This is a very small owl.
