Saw-whet owl, Darwin, with his heart-breaking stare. Image taken at the San Francisco Zoo.

Unfortunately, I don’t have much time to write about saw-whet owls right now. I promise I will tell you more about these guys later. I just thought I’d have a picture of Darwin here so his big eyes can break your heart and warm you up for the next time.  Darwin is with the San Francisco Zoo because he was hit by a vehicle and as you can clearly see, his wing didn’t heal correctly.  He is a ferocious little owl, but since he’s so small, it hardly makes a difference. Adorable. Once again, I appreciate your patience with the shorter posts while my husband and I are transitioning to a new state. We’re officially leaving on the 19th, after which my normal posts will begin again.
