|Little owl - Athena noctua - Kukumav|
The Turkish name of this bird is came from its call.
Little Owls are easily recognised by their small, squat, flat-headed, long-legged shape and relatively grey plumage heavily marked with white. They have a distinctively bounding flight, gliding upwards before they land, showing broad rounded wings.
Breeds and winters in orchards, hedgerows and open areas with drystone walls or derelict buildings.
Decreasing but still widespread in central and, especially, southern Europe where they are common enough to be seen relatively easily, even in daylight, in many places.
This photo was taken with leica apo-televid x20.
USM, levels and blur to the BG done on PS 8.0.
