Baby screech owls often move from nest to nearby branches before they can fly, and they are pretty common sightings throughout the United States. However, it is still unique to see an owl living in the Elmwood area. 

Adult screech owls weigh about 3 to 8 ounces, and they are usually gray or red. You’ll be able to identify a screech owl by their high pitched screech and an accompanying whistle that walks down the octave scale.
