Can You Say 'Awwww?' by Ciameth Can You Say 'Awwww?' by Ciameth
I don't think this is one of my best photos, but this Northern Saw-Whet Owl is one of the most adorable things I've ever seen. Sure, she shreds mice for lunch and would do the same to the fingers of anyone disrespectful enough to forget she's a wild animal, but each time I look at her, my first thought is always "awww."

This bird is a permanent resident at a raptor rehabilitation facility. Non-releasable due to blindness in one eye, she now serves as an education bird.

yes, I can. because it can't get much cuter than this. :D
how big is she?
maybe it's because of the size of the head compared to the body, but she looks tiny, somehow.

She weighs about 90 grams, very tiny! With all the feathers, her body is about the size of a fist.
