Eye to eye

I'm not sure what type of owl this is. I was pleased with the result considering it was taken through a mesh fence (London Zoo). It was wide mesh so put the lens right up to a gap.

After doing a bit of googling I think it might be a Burrowing Owl (Athene cunicularia) which is native to North and South America.
