Pygmy-Owl at my feeders - tshedwall - 12 Feb 2018

I've had a huge flock of Juncos and finches at my backyard bird feeders today in the light snow. This afternoon at about 3:30, I heard the Juncos in my front yard, extremely agitated. I went out to see if there was a cat in the yard, but didn't see anything. I glanced in the backyard and did a double take as I realized there was a Northern Pygmy-Owl on the ground. I managed to get a picture of it with it's House Finch meal.
