there i was, strolling along with the sun on my face when i spotted a pair of bright beady eyes looking at my ankles. yes! it was a burrowing owl! these little guys aren’t shy, he was just sitting on the ground outside his hole in the ground enjoying the sun like the rest of us. burrowing owls aren’t nocturnal like other owls although they do their hunting at night. which is good, because to be honest birdies aren’t so cute when they are feeding on something small and wriggly. he posed nicely, we stared at each other for a while and then i wandered off, looking for the next cool birdy sighting.
here’s my version of the burrowing owl. My owl necklace is available in the store.
ps. there’s matching owl earrings too.
