The Burrowing Owl ( athene cunicularia )
A super little owl not normally resident in this country with his normal habitat the dry open plains of North and South America. This one is, of course, a captive bird and is resident of the place I often frequent- the Hawk Conservacy at Weyhill. In his display he really does act like a wild bird and makes use of the burrow he is standing in front of.
Hope you will like him.
Many thanks for the generous c/c's on the Nuthatch and more thanks to Mike (Mike Smith) for the UA. I am most grateful.
