Northern Saw-whet Owl In A Snow Squall

I've avoided photographing a specific Northern Saw-when Owl for over a month because I've felt I had to be too close to the owl to photograph it without disturbing it.  On Wednesday, during a brief but at times intense snow squall, the bird was on a new branch and could be photographed from a safe distance.  The owl was wide awake after being bounced around rather intensely by high winds.  The tree was pushed eight feet by the winds at one point.
