Burrowing Owl

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Barbara Hannibal

Photo taken with Nikon D5200, Burrowing Owl who lives near my home and poses regularly for pictures. This long legged owl and it's mate chose to live in my neighborhood and nest under the sidewalk of a vacant lot. There are three babies that I have yet to get on camera as they are very shy. They are out in the morning sun. At night they can be heard hunting for food. An amazing and beautiful bird right here in the neighborhood.

Location: Yuma, Arizona, Yuma County, Southwest, USA
