The smallest owl species in eastern North America (6 ½ - 8 inches long), slightly smaller than the Screech. Together with the Snowy Owl, it is one of the only migratory species of owl, though it lives year-round in southern Canada and the northern United States. Very tame, it hides in dense thickets and small trees, often quite close to the ground. It’s name comes from its call, a repeated tooting whistle which has been likened to the sound made by a saw being sharpened on a whetstone. The painting depicts a sighting in Algonquin Park, where the bird roosted close to a campsite in the woods.
