Coruja-buraqueira / Burrowing Owl ( Athene cunicularia )

Burrowing Owl

 

The Burrowing Owl (Athene cunicularia) is a tiny, but long-legged owl found throughout open landscapes of North and South America. Burrowing Owls can be found in grasslands, rangelands, agricultural areas, deserts, or any other dry, open area with low vegetation. They nest and roost in burrows, such as those excavated by prairie dogs. Unlike most owls, Burrowing Owls are often active during the day. (Info:Wikipedia
