Feeding an injured adult Saw-Whet
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.
