Friday Photos – Juvenile Burrowing Owl

Juvenile Burrowing just after sunrise

Juvenile Burrowing just after sunrise - Nikon D200, f8, 1/750, ISO 250, Nikkor 200-400mm VR with 1.4x TC at 400mm, natural light, not baited

I just adore Burrowing Owls, especially the juveniles because they seem to be more animated than the adults. This owlet had three other siblings that were equally as cute. This is probably one of the moments were the juvenile looked more serious than at other times.

Just a short post this morning as I am heading out to photograph more birds.

About Mia McPherson

I am a nature lover, wildlife watcher and a bird photographer. I first become serious about bird photography when I moved to Florida in 2004 and it wasn’t long before I was hooked (addicted is more like it). My move to the Salt Lake area of Utah was a great opportunity to continue observing their behavior and photographing birds. My approach is to photograph the birds without disturbing their natural behavior. I don't bait, use set ups or call them in. I use Nikon gear and has multiple camera bodies and lenses.


  1. These birds are so darned cute! All this one needs is a top hat to go with those tails.
