Small owl, pint size, with ear tuffs. make a soft whirring call. Normally it is gone till winter, but it has returned and kicked out the nesting squirrel because of a severe cold front has moved into our area.
This little screech owl has used this flicker box for the past two winters. We have a Great Horned Owl in the area and this small flicker box seems to give it comfort.
