Eastern Screech Owl

Megascops asio

Gray morph eastern screech owl.

Habitat:

Found around noon sitting in a grove of bamboo. He stayed in that spot for several hours (at least 6).

The surrounding area had an abundance of rats, squirrels, anoles, and other small prey items ideal for a small owl.
