Eastern Screech Owl
Photographer: Jamie Hagwood
Location: Pettigrew State Park, Creswell, North Carolina
Story: 
Me and my family were camping when we heard some weird noises coming from behind the campsite. To my surprise, two screech owls were hanging about. Presumably a mother (shown) and a juvenile covered in grey fluffy feathers. I stuck it out through the mosquitoes and heat simply to watch something I'd never seen before. I loved it any I would give anything to do it again.
