I don't know much about owls, it appeared to have a bunch of downy feathers on it. The pictures came from my phone, sometimes it would be nice to carry a good camera. Then again, trampling around in the woods carrying a gun I probably shouldn't.
My uncle is a bird bird watcher, so I sent him the pics. He wrote this back!
The size would make it either an Eastern Screech Owl or a Northern Saw-whet Owl. Either could be found out there but the Screech Owl would be more
prevalent. The head looks a little squarish and it appears to have tufted ears so, my guess is an Eastern Screech Owl. Nice find.
