18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Whoo's Looking at Whoo?

This image is of a saw-whet owl, one of 6 siblings living along a walking trail in my town. This owl family was the delight of many residents as we were in lock down with schools closed. Many came to respectfully observe and learn about these cute owls; they were easy to find and spot in the trees, often snuggled in together with each other.
