a very ferruginous christmas

So check out our Christmas present

This is a Ferruginous Pygmy Owl.   They have a fairly easy call to mimic, and they are fairly easy to call in, as is evidenced by this little fella that Tom called in right above our heads this morning!

here's a link with a bunch of much better photos!


  1. ahaha cute and funny. :) i love owls, they have a very mysterious way.

  2. How exciting! I'm patiently waiting for the Bald Eagles to return. Not cold enough yet.
