In Cape Coral, Florida. A few more Burrowing Owls, and a Florida Scrub Jay. Man, the jays are a lot harder to find!

Glad to see you are making good use of your time Ian! I don't think I've ever seen a photo of a Burrowing Owl in flight!

Great work, I have seen burrowers flying but only at dawn when there is less than no light. Please keep sending

Thanks Sandy, you're right, they are seldom seen in flight.

Thanks Bob, these were taken just at dusk, and he didn't fly very far. They are quick little guys!

Good ones, Ian; I love the scrub jay, a bird I have not seen. I've seen the Mexican variety, but not the Florida.

Thanks Al, yes it was neat to see a new-to-me type of jay. I also disovered that in their genetics they are preprogrammed to like peanuts, just as much as blue jays ...

Great shots Ian, the owls are easy to find but take patience. I know a place not far from Viera Wetlands where the Jays will follow you around. Did you know here's a hefty fine for feeding them? Not saying you did but wanted to be sure you knew.

Thanks for that Steve. Yea, when I got there, there were a few peanuts on the ground I guess someone had been feeding them. And they were landing on my head, on my camera, and also on my truck roof and hood...amazingly friendly birds, afraid of nothing.

That's a sure sign that they've become "tamed" by humans feeding them, that's why there's a law against it. They see people and its like the dinner bell rang. They're interesting birds with established groups that live in a relatively small area and will not leave. That's another reason for protecting their habitat from development. It's nice to see Florida has those designated areas for the Scrubs and also their dedication to protecting the Burrowing Owls.
