One of the best photo opportunities that I had this winter came from a small saw-whet owl that over wintered at local nature center, Dodge Nature Center . The kids in one of the classes at the nature center first found the owl and it was still hanging around a month later when the birding community found out about it. Since the nature center is close to my house I stopped by frequently to check on the bird and snap a few pics. Each day I found it in the same tree. A couple of times it had mice. I had to wait several hours for it to get hungry enough to wake up and eat, but it was worth it.
