In response to the note from Mary Ellen Ahearn, I might suggest a location for the Saw-whet owls. I have lived in Auburn for many years. Although I have not specifically looked for Saw-whets in this location for at least 2 winters, it has been profitable in the past. The Green River Valley Road just east of Auburn off of highway 18 is excellent owl area. Three, four and five years ago I have seen and heard Saw-whets on at least 5 occasions on this road. Great-horned, Western Screech, and Barn can also be found along here. During the day watch for Ruffed Grouse. The spot that we found the Saw-whets was approximatly 5 miles west of Flaming Geyser State Park, although there is a lot of suitable habitat in the area. Good luck.
