Saw-whet song – March 15, 2007

Monday morning I was laying in bed awake and thinking about a million different things when all of a sudden I heard the tooting of a Saw-whet Owl! This was about 5:30 a.m., I hopped out of bed like a bunny and threw on some winter clothing and grabbed a flashlight. I went outside to see if I could find the owl, he was right in the backyard somewhere. Well, I couldn’t find the owl and he stopped calling. Maybe next time – I’m going to keep trying. I haven’t got a Saw-whet on my life list yet and it’s really bugging me.

This owl is about 2-3 weeks ahead of last year. I was doing the owl survey last year and I didn’t hear Saw-whets until April.
