Northern Saw-whet Owl

The Northern-Saw-whet Owl is the smallest owl in the Eastern United States. They have a thriving population but are rarely seen by people due to their small size and shy nature. They are most at home in the thick boreal forests of Canada, but can be found breeding in alpine forests as far south as Mexico. During the winter, a portion of their population migrates south and can be found in all 48 of the contiguous United States. Their presence in Alaska is year-round.
