This baby screech owl looked out through the same doorway where one of its parents was stationed on May 12. (See here for the adult.)

If your interest in birds is serious, you might want to get a better binocular. Like a Vortex Diamondback.
It has good optical quality and an extremely wide field of view. It's waterproof and has a lifetime guarantee.
It comes in several sizes. We recommend the 8x42 model.
We can see birds with our ears. Through trees. Around corners. In the dark. Behind our heads.
Birding By Ear CD teaches how to know birds by their sounds.
There's a version for Eastern North America and one for Western. We recommend them.
