Burrowing Owls and American Robins are about the same size but they are two very different species of birds. Think of a can of soda and that is about how big they are. I have mentioned before in my posts that they are about the same size but I’d never posted images of both species together before and thought it was about time I did for comparison’s sake.
American Robins seem to be everywhere and are easy to spot but from personal experience I can say that Burrowing Owls can be more difficult to see and locate in their habitat because they blend in so well.
The Burrowing Owls just seem “larger than life” to me much of the time.
Life is good.
The Burrowing Owl was photographed in Box Elder County, Utah this year and the American Robin was photographed just outside of Virginia City in Madison County, Montana in 2009.
