#2628 SAW-WHET OWL
This is a life-sized Pocketknife Carving of the Saw-whet Owl.
It is entirely hand-made: carved out of Basswood with a Buck 307 jackknife, and painted with acrylic paints.
The Saw-whet Owl gets its name from its repetitive call that sounds, to some, like the sharpening of a saw.
His small size and secretive ways mean that the little Saw-whet is more common than most people realize.
He hunts at night and hides in thick cover during the day.
With his sharp talons and keen appetite, he is a cute little weapon of mouse destruction!
The little owl also preys on insects, lizards, small birds and other small critters.
Mounted on an attractive piece of driftwood.
Numbered, signed and dated on the underside of the base.
