A small owl of all types of woodlands, the Northern Saw-whet Owl can be found roosting in winter in small, dense conifer trees, sometimes even in parks and gardens. Its defense upon discovery is to sit still and not fly, leading people to perceive them as "tame" when, in reality, their approachibility is a reaction to sress in the species.

This is a photograph of the first Northern Saw-whet Owl I ever saw and it quickly became my favorite bird species.
 

 

Stocklist

The stocklist contains more than a thousand photographs of North American bird species. You may search for a photo by using a bird's common name or scientific name. If you don't recall the exact name of the bird you can use a keyword (i.e. if you are searching for a Northern Saw-whet Owl you can type in "owl" and a list of owl species in the stocklist will appear).

Upon selecting the species you wish to review, thumbnails will appear that you can click on to display a larger view in the viewing box.
