The east­ern screech owl is more likely to be heard than seen

World of Animals - - Masters Of Masquerade -

This mot­tled owl lives in wood­land along the east­ern edge of North Amer­ica. It hunts at night and rests in tree cav­i­ties dur­ing day­light hours, us­ing its ef­fec­tive cam­ou­flage to avoid de­tec­tion. Its call is not a true screech, likened in­stead to the whinny of a minia­ture horse.
