Eastern Screech Owl, Gray Morph in Milwaukee County Wisconsin on January 30, 2020

One of my birding stops today provided nice views of an Eastern Screech Owl, gray morph. It was resting, its eyes were closed. It was a cloudy day with mild temps, a pleasant morning to be out birding. Images were taken on January 30, 2020.
