Sleeping EASTERN SCREECH OWLMegascops asio©hump7/John Gavin
The Eastern Screech Owl is a small owl that is relatively common in Eastern North America, from Mexico to Canada.
They are strictly nocturnal, roosting during the day in cavities or next  to tree trunks [as shown - they are wonderfully camouflaged]. They are quite common, and can often be found in  residential areas. Though they generally go unnoticed, these owls are  frequently heard calling at night, especially during their spring  breeding season.
Despite their name, this owl (nor most “screech-owls”)  doesn’t truly screech. The Eastern Screech-Owl’s call is a haunting tremolo with a descending, whinny-like quality.
