Burrowing Owls Florida 2015

they are small cute and one amazing owl.
Although the weather was cold we still saw 9 owls.

Just at dusk and a pair came out.  The one owl on the right spit a pellet out on the sand.

A little roust

Very special pair of owls.  One has yellow eyes and one brown.  

Another shot of the owls with two different colours of eyes.  My understanding is that the east coast burrowing owls have both yellow and brown eyes where the west coast are all yellow.

Yes I am very cute.

I was thrilled to see the process of expelling a pellet. How I would have loved to see what was in it.. Look closely and you can see pellet in his throat.

Here comes the pellet.
