Feist




Here is a a picture of Fiest, being held by Alex L. before being released. We were tracking our other owl, Fang, but kept checking up on Feist to make sure she was around. In the morning we found her roosting high up in a white pine. We have been spoiled with the owls choosing pitch pines to perch in where they are often easier to see. White pines have denser needles and limbs, so a saw-whet that is perched high is hard to spot.

Absolutely Darling Critter. Saw Whet are probably my favorite owl. Great little faces :-) Keep up the good work :D
