Western Screech Owl

As they say in golf, I'd rather be lucky than good. And that was exactly what we were when we stumbled upon the Western Screech Owl peering out of its roost/nest cavity. There is a very small spot on the trail from where the owl is visible - had we not stopped precisely where we did yesterday to look at a Black-throated Gray Warbler that was foraging near the cavity we would have never noticed the owl peeking its head out of the tree. 

Can you find the roost/nest cavity - I barely can and I know where it is.

How about now? The power of magnification!
