This is a Burrowing Owl. People like owls. Dig.
And for good measure, here's some video.
|In the first three weeks of this year, there have been about three sunny days. This Winter Wren and I crossed paths on one of those days.|
|Cactus Wren is extremely restricted in Travis County. It's not an inner circle bird, but you've got to know.|
|Rock Wren is another tough bird in Travis, although it seems that lately, some have been at Mansfield Dam. If they stick, it may save about 30 minutes on this years Big Day.|
|As great as that green back looks, it doesn't count for shit until you see the tail.|
|This was the clincher.|
|"Love my birds! This cute little guy keeps me company on the park bench every morning! He loves crackers!"|
|"ID please. I think it's an Orange-crowned Warbler because of the orange on its head."|
|This is a different chat. Obviously, still a chat though, right?|
