A pair of burrowing owls showing their affection and playing kissy face.
Okay, I admit, they could have just been cleaning bugs off of each other’s faces. I am a romantic at heart though so I will go with the more appealing reason for this display. 😉
I always say that burrowing owls are arguably one of the most entertaining forms of wildlife you could hope to see. They are rarely motionless and their activities just bring a smile to your face.
Here, the male (left), flew in and instantly started this routine. She definitely appeared to be appreciative and enjoyed it.
