Interesting

I don't think I've ever seen a young owl before, or an owl photo on SP for that matter! Great shot!

"baby"?

This looks like an adult Northern Saw-Whet. They only grow 7 or 8 inches long - same size as a baltimore oriole.

Aw, I think you're right. I guess I should have looked it up. Thanks for the info.

Strange

I have a nearly identical photo that I took in the Boundary waters, where did you shoot this photo?

Re: Strange

I shot this photo at around 10k on the NF of Big Pine Creek trail, the eastern approach to the Palisades. This little guy hung around our camp for an hour or so.

Cool

Cool little owl, I see a few of those around the mountain range I climb every year, and they are pretty cool.
