  1. Hi there. I think I would go with the name Cedar. I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and this past Friday, my wife and I came upon an adult Saw-Whet Owl out in the bush amongst "Cedars". This was the first time as birders that we had ever seen a Saw-Whet Owl. Fortunately, we had our camera with us and got some good pictures and video. We have posted them for anyone interested at:

  2. Hi there. Since sighting the Northern Saw-Whet Owl in October, Jean, and I came upon a Barred Owl in Rouge National Park, near Markham, Ontario this past Sunday. This was the second time in six weeks that we have come upon, and filmed, an owl out in the wilds. Prior to these two sightings, we had never seen an owl in its natural habitat. Needless to say, it has been an exciting six weeks. Our pictures and video of the Barred Owl sighting are posted on our blog at:
