Eastern screech owl (Megascops asio)

The Eastern screech owl (Megascops asio), no bigger than a pint glass whose spooky sounds can fill the night. They are common east of the Rockies, found wherever trees are, and love to hide in nooks and tree crannies.
This one was photographed by George McGeorge at Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge, on the Georgia/Florida border.
