Thank you for your patience while we retrieve your images.
Owl, (order Strigiformes), any member of a homogeneous order of primarily nocturnal raptors found nearly worldwide. The bird of Athena, the Greek goddess of practical reason, is the little owl (Athene noctua).
One of my favorite to photograph. Not often seen or found. They are so quiet and well hidden. Always a treat to see in the wild.
