Burrowing Owl (Athene cunicularia)

A bad day, the weather and the rest of it.
These two Burrowing Owls were taken in the past, unfortunately with my old camera and lens.

  1. they're so cute! We have colonies of them near us here in Florida; I haven't gotten over to look for them yet this season, but last year I got quite a few pictures. Not this good though.

  15. They're so tiny! What do these things eat? Well, rodents I guess, but there are rodents as big as these guys.
