Short-Eared Owl, Kuwait
Photograph by Mohn Khorshid
A short-eared owl keeps one eye peeled while it relaxes in a Kuwait natural reserve. The short-eared owl, which calls every continent except Australia and Antarctica home, prefers open country, marshes, tundra, and weedy fields. During the day it roosts on the ground or on an open, low perch.
