Upon entering my bedroom this afternoon, I walked over  to the window, which 
has three bird feeders hanging from it, and it  overlooks a multitude of other 
feeders in the yard. Sitting in the corner  of my window sill, was a rufous 
morph Screech Owl. I don't know who was more  surprised, the owl or me. He was 
half asleep, but upon realizing my presence, he  quickly opened his eyes and 
then flew up into the tree in the fence row. This  got a chorus of chickadees, 
titmouse, robins, and cardinals all in a  lather. 
It's been awhile since I have seen or heard a Screech  owl in our 
neighborhood, and this is the first time I have had a  rufous morph in my yard. 
Anyway, just wanted to share my find and excitement  with other birders. He 
was a beauty.
