Feeding an injured adult Saw-Whet Owl

Feeding an injured adult Saw-Whet Owl.

Named for its distinctive call, the Saw-Whet is the smallest member of the eastern Owl family. Saw-Whets feed primarily on insects but will eat mice and small birds. These tiny birds of prey have black beaks, unlike other Owls. However, like many other Owls, they are cavity nesters, they do not migrate to tropical locations, and they are nocturnal.

This adult Owl was found on the side of a highway with a head injury, probably from being hit by a car. It made a full recovery and was released, hunting skills intact.
