Bird on a Stick

This little eastern screech owl isn't what I usually think of when I hear the term rapture. Don't think he could compete with most of his fellow birds of prey.

Beautiful image. This is one of those owls that use to startle me during the summer time as a younger kid. Then I learned what was making that sound and felt foolish lol.

Yes, they do have a startling call, hence their name.

Thanks. I love owls, too. I just wish they weren't so elusive.

I guess that's why they stay safe & undetected by their prey+1
