BURROWING OWL, Athene cunicularia, “Tecolote Llanero” (Spanish)
Time for some light heartedness and whimsy! I chose the expressive Burrowing Owl, a tiny ten-inch wonder that digs and lives in sandy burrows. Locals in the peninsula may think it is the Ferruginous Pygmy-Owl, but it isn’t.
With less than five reports of this occasional visitor to the Yucatan, it does live in nearby Cape Coral, Florida where I photographed them.
So give a little smile!
I see a flying sorcerer!
Aren’t you sweet! Why thank you
It tickles my tongue
I know who you are and what you did
Elvis, Harry Styles, and Charlie Puth copied my hairstyle
I wonder if Nair would work…
It’s a dirty job
Monday Morning Yawn
Oh no, she didn’t!
Hey Sonny when you get my age you lose your teeth
Tee hee hee
Kiss Kissy Kisses!
Stop! I can’t take any more!
LET NATURE SMILE UPON YOU!
