Abstract

The Northern Saw-whet Owl (Aegolius acadicus) is common inhabitant of forested lands from central Canada south to the central United Stated (Godfrey 1986). Despite its wide range, very little is known of its breeding biology (Cannings 1987). Catling (1972) noted that food habits data from the breeding season are "very meagre." Indeed, we know of only one large sample of Northern Saw-whet Owl food habits from the breeding season (Cannings 1987).
