Screech-Owl is one of the owl species that is frequently seen around
people. I often get questions at owling.com about the resident neighborhood
Eastern Screech-Owl. Bill sent in this nice photo of a red phase Eastern
Screech-Owl with questions and commented: "Seen In West Orange, NJ in
a chestnut tree about 15 feel off the ground mid-day January 15, 2011.
He/she wasn't afraid of lots of human activity nearby."
