This little Burrowing Owl seemed less than enthused to be having his picture taken as he sat on a fence post. 😉
A couple of the males at one of the spots where I go to take pictures of these birds have actually grown extraordinarily tolerant. As long as you pull up slowly in your vehicle, they will stand on the fence posts and let you take all the pictures you want.
The females are still below ground right now, no doubt keeping their recently born offspring warm. Within the next few weeks those little ones should start making public appearances which is when the real fun begins. Taken in Adams County, Colorado.
