Burrowing Owl

Hat's off to Devin Bosler and Justin Bosler for finding a rare, review list Burrowing Owl at Hackberry Ridge and for generously sharing their find for all Labirders to see! They are on a serious roll with Owls lately with the Long-Eared Owl, Burrowing and Short-Eared Owl.

This little guy with his big bright yellow eyes, white eyebrows and long legs is an amazing bird.

All this little guy needs is a clump of grass in order to blend in with his surroundings.

This stately small Owl is quite a sight to see.

He kept a sharp eye on the Hawks as they passed overhead.

He never once let them out of his sight.

Even if the Hawks flew directly overhead he was on them.

He kept an eye on us as well. It was cool the way his pupils dialated different sizes in accordance with the shade and the position to the sun.

This little fellow really knows how to use the surroundings to camouflage himself.

I hope you enjoyed viewing these pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Thanks again Devin and Justin. :)
