Owl of the evening photo!! Little dad resting on his perch. I believe this is dad because of his smaller size (females are a 1/3 bigger) and the fact that I have only seen him once since the little ones left the nest. Hoping to bump into him again soon. He's got his own unique look with the lazy eyelid on the right.
This is one of the youngest burrowing owl babies I have seen.
I spent a few hours inside a sweltering vehicle watching a burrow from a good distance away. This baby popped up for a few minutes before retreating back inside the cool burrow.
These owls are endangered in California, mostly due to human encroachment and urbanization.
Mom spends most of her time in the burrow with the babies, while Dad stands guard outside. The sun bleaches the male owl’s feathers so he looks substantially lighter-coloured than the female owl.
Great horned owl - Like all owls, their large eyes cannot move. To look up, down or to the side the owls must move their entire heads and are able to turn their necks about 270 degrees. #elite_raptors#elite_owls#onlyowls
Fledgling Powerful Owl (Ninox strenua) from last night with @_faunagraphic and @joshbaker_wildshots
A couple of our pairs have been a bit later than previous years with chicks fledging in September, others were right on time with chicks fledging late July/early August. I don't mind, more time to enjoy the babies!
