Meet the saw-whet, the tiniest of Minnesota's owls, a mere eight inches from the tip of its blunt tail to the top of its rounded head.

Or, if you're lucky, you might witness the male throwing all caution to the wind and "co-co-co-co-ing" for a mate, inching forward on every note like the bird in a cuckoo clock.

Hawk Ridge : Minnesota's birds of prey by Laura Erickson( )

6 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Was Caesar like the eagle because of his aquiline (from aquila, "eagle" in Latin) nose, or does the eagle seem imperial because of his Caesar-like beak? Does the sharp vision of a "hawk-eyed" observer have any basis in nature? And what the heck is "kettling" to a bird-watcher-or, for that matter, a bird? Raptors have captured the imagination from time immemorial and have an especially rich history in Minnesota. The ancient peoples whose pictographs adorn the rock faces of Lake Superior's North Shore may well have witnessed the first hawk movements along Lake Superior-the same annual migration
