Day 56 – Baltimore, Maryland

Posted on

The kindness of strangers!

I arrived in Baltimore last night(where I had left my car weeks ago) too tired to drive an additional 2 hours to get to VA.

I was in my hotel room when I saw that a Facebook friend had posted pictures of a Northern Saw-whet Owl and that it was in Baltimore!

Today, I contacted David and within an hour, he met me at the site and led me directly to this Owl!! What a little beauty.

Saw-whets are only 7-8″ long and spend the days in dense vegetation. They are very hard to see. Without help, I don’t think I would have found him.

Thank you David Fleischmann for your kindness and for following me on FB. If it hadn’t been for Facebook, I would have never known about this bird. A lifer and #432 for the year!

Like I’ve said many times, any day with an Owl in it, is a good day. Plus, I made a new friend.
