Artist's Description

This shot shows our mated pair of Elf owls from this spring. Before the female begins to incubate her eggs, both male and female exit their nest cavity at dusk to forage. Often the female will wait on a perch near the nest and wait for the male to return with food to feed her. Once she begins tio incubate, he brings food to her at the nest cavity. In this photo, he has just presented her with a cockroach. Note the apparent size difference, the female on the right being larger than the male on the left.
