Northern Saw-whet owl

Northern Saw-whet owl (Aegolius acadicus)
While sitting on the deck the other night this Saw-whet owl came for a visit and didn't mind having it's picture taken. Saw-whet owls are strictly nocturnal and seldom observed. Most bird watchers consider seeing one a "once in a lifetime" experience. Few people ever see a live saw-whet owl.
