I suspect a juvenile? It hit our window this a.m. but obviously he snapped out of it in a hurry and is doing fine

I'm really not sure, but it's beautiful. I'm glad it's ok. :) I love taking photos of wild life and I'd love to get a photo of an owl.

Ok..what about a Northern Pygmy Owl?
I think that's what it is!

Not a clue, but cool to see sitting outside your window. Do you live in a wooded area?

ooh maybe it is? I live in Washington State so it could be? i thought it was a juvenile, we have lots of barred owls here but they're huge

Yep i live in a very rural area about 7 minutes out of town and see lots of wildlife coming through here!

Yes, I believe that's a Pygmy. We have one up here in our zoo and it's tiny!

Speaking of wild kingdom, this little buck walked through my yard this morning, he was with another young buck with smaller points, sorry about the glare, was taken through my window
