This grey morph Eastern Screech-Owl was
in Brookbanks Ravine, Toronto, on 19 December 2014. It was being
mobbed by Black-capped Chickadees, White-breasted and Red-breasted
Nuthatches, Downy and Hairy Woodpeckers, Dark-eyed Juncos and
American Goldfinches. Because the small birds were making so much
noise and flying at the owl, Ron Pittaway and I found it as it tried
to be inconspicuous at the top of a young Eastern Hemlock.
