Two northern saw-whet owls are sitting on the small leafless branch of a slanted tree in a mountainous landscape of coniferous woodland.
The northern saw-whet owl (Aegolius acadicus), referred to as “Kirtland’s owl (Nictale kirtlandii)” by the author, is a small nocturnal bird of prey in the family Strigidae native to North America.
