Photo of the Month - February 2013
Dear Nature Canada,
Thanks Tania, this is a great shot!
The Western Screech-Owl is a small owl found in urban as well as wild lands of western North America. This owl prefers open forest for foraging and requires cavities in old, large trees for nesting and roosting. The Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada splits the western screech-owl into two subspecies; The Kennicottii subspecies was designated Special Concern, and the Macfarlanei is designated Endangered.
