Et veig! / I can see you!

Al contrari que tots els rapinyaires de les fotos del Cim d'Aligues, aquest xot (otus scops) va per lliure. Això és el maxim que m'hi vaig poder acostar. Poc despres va marxar, cansat de que no el deixes dormir, el pobre.

I spoted this scops owl (otus scops) from a window. It was sleeping in a fig tree! You can see that he has elevated his "feather ears" to break his silhouette and resemble a piece of wood.
