Little Red Roosting In A Nest Box

Via Flickr:
Contently roosting from a nest box attached to a large tree at the E L Johnson Nature Center in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. When I first took a look at the nest boxes in the hope of finding a Wood Duck, I saw something small and orange sticking it's head out of the nest box. I thought, what is a Tabby Cat doing in a nest box, when I got closer I discovered an Eastern Screech-Owl (red morph) at the entrance hole to the nest box. What a thrill to see a red morph of this species.

Indeed! Very cool. That house must have great acoustics to accommodate the Screech Owl
