a Saw Whet Owl at Germantown Metropark in Ohio

Wisdom is ofttimes nearer when we stoop than when we soar.
~ William Wordsworth

The wise old owl made me think of wisdom and here is the quote that spoke to me. This little guy, actually, gal, was caught last night in Germantown Ohio and banded for research, data was collected, she was admired by many and then released unharmed. I was amazed by how calm the owls remained during all this. Through data gathered by banding, it appears that the Saw Whet owls migrate from Canada to southern Ohio for the winter. This was an awe inspiring experience!
