Last night I had a thrilling encounter with a saw-whet owl. Returning home from basketball practice with my daughter at about 8:30, immediately upon getting out of the car we heard the repetitive call of a saw-whet coming from the woods at the edge of the swamp behind our house. By imitating the call, I was able to summon the owl close enough to get a few photos before letting it get back to hunting. See the link below. I honestly still can hardly believe my good fortune!
