Small and Fierce (Northern Pygmy Owl)
Image Description: Perched high a Northern Pygmy Owl glances my direction briefly before returning to its focused search for prey. Back Story: Owls are always a favorite subject for me. During my latest venture to Glacier National Park, My husband spotted this Northern pygmy owl right next to a parking area for a trail. Since Northern pygmy owls are diurnal they can be found hunting during the day. This little one picked a great spot as on several occasions when we drove by I noticed a small flock of pine siskins in the trees. Small song birds are always on the menu for the pygmy.
