A Northen Saw Whet Owl visits Mountain Valley Farm

Posted on Sunday 8 February 2009

Gib and Sue Geiger had the good fortune to give some Mad River Valley hospitality to this Northen Saw Whet Owl for two days last month at their farm in Waitsfield.  Saw Whet Owls are the smallest owls in the eastern US, only 8 inches long.  Their main diet is rodents.  The reside in Vermont year round.  2009 has been a great year for owls thus far with many sightings of Snowy Owls in Whiting, Vermont (of all places) and of a Northern Hawk Owl in Eden, Vermont, as recently as Friday 2/6.
