Inwood Hill Park in Upper Manhattan is home to at least one breeding pair of eastern screech-owls. I visited a brooding screech-owl on April 14,  2018, to watch the owl sleep.

These robin-sized nocturnal owls eat small mammals and birds. The female rarely leaves her eggs, relying on the male to bring her food. The Filming the Feathers video is accompanied by a Chopin nocturne while she sleeps. It is sort of like watching paint dry, except a nicer image and the knowledge that the lack of action means the owl wasn't disturbed by my presence.
