I just happened to come across this guy on a recent holiday during a late night walk. So I thought I would share.

C & C are welcome.

DBB,
They aren't listed in any bird book I've got (looked by latin name, Podargus strigoides, and directly) and they aren't in the cornell lab's web site. I really don't think they are a US Owl.

Are you really saying they are in Brooklyn, or are you just having fun with me?

My apologies Eric. Yes, I'm just playing around. Sorry. I have to watch my sense of humour...

I am not sure if I have the proper name for this owl but it is what I have always known them as. In regards as to "how big they are?" this one would have been able 10" tall. At the time it was very, very dark and it was my camera doing most of the seeing, not me. (It actually took me a number of shots before I was able to frame the owl properly, that is how dark it was.)
