Burrowing Owl

The only small terrestrial owl in North America, Burrowing Owls nest burrows and often rests on fence posts by day. Its populations have declined with the loss of its open-country habitat to agriculture and development and with the drastic reduction of black-tailed prairie dogs, which provided burrows.

The Florida sub-species (floridana) differs from western hypugaea in plumage; both taxa have strayed out of range.

VOICE Male; an odd, endearing, roosterlike coo-cooo! Female a harsh, short screech.

My goal is to get my name out there among the vast ocean of Natural photographers. To be known for my skill with a Point & Shoot~

My images are not photo shopped. They have only been adjusted with basic sharpening, contrasting & saturation techniques. I believe that in order to appreciate Nature, you have to capture it as it is, naturally.
