Fun
fact- I not only run this tumblr in my free time, but I also work with owls as
well! Thought I’d share one of the Northern Saw-whet Owls (Aegolius acadicus)
that I handled a month ago. 

Many Saw-whets are migratory,
and this year we saw an influx of owls at many banding stations along the US
east coast this past October/November. They’re very elusive and there’s still
much to learn, so banding them has been an ongoing effort for many years.

They’re fierce little
predators, but that can be easy to forget when you actually see them in the
hand!
