I need some help identifying this owl.
While walking in the wooded area of my front yard,
looking for nests in the trees, I spotted it.
I've never seen one perched in the tree in daylight hours.
Had it flown, I probably would have peed my pants
since I was only 8-10 feet away from it.
I'm not sure if it's a young owl or just a small one.
It's maybe 7-8 inches high.
It kept a very close eye on me as I moved around,
only turning it's head.
I was thrilled, needless to say, and would appreciate
