|The southern burrowing owl (Athene cunicularia) is a small long-legged owl that, unlike most owls, is active during the day. It is common in southern Brazil in dry open areas with low vegetation. Its diet consists of small rodents, large insects, toads, frogs, etc. As the name implies, it nests and roosts in underground burrows.|
This shot was taken from a distance of about 75 m with the equivalent of a 560 mm lens.
