Burrowing Owl on Rock
This is a typical hunting posture for a burrowing owl
in the desert. These owls are among the smallest in North America. They
live underground in burrows that have been dug out by small mammals
like ground squirrels and prairie dogs. They are covered in brown spotted
feathers and have long legs. They also sport distinctive white ĺ─˙eyebrowsĺ─¨
above bright yellow eyes.
