That’s a great bird to get to see! Based on where you live, and bill color, it’s probably the Eastern Screech Owl as opposed to Western.

I have personally only seen “live” Screech owls a few times – they are more often heard than seen. We have one now that calls in our meadow almost nightly. It’s an awesome call (you should be able to find audio files on the link above). They have a descending whinny and an ethereal trill.

One morning I found a “fresh” Screech by the side of the road taking the kids to school. It ended up on my desk at work:

And later was added to a museum collection. I am curious how your visitor got out of the garage?
