Explore Small Owl, Kruger National Park, and more!

Tiny African Scops Owl (Otus senegalensis) Satara Camp, Kruger National Park, South Africa. A very small owl with ear tufts. During the day the Scops will often roost in a tree, positioning itself on a branch against the tree trunk where its cryptic coloring makes detection difficult. This camouflage is further enhanced when the owl compresses its feathers, appearing to elongate itself, while raising its ear tufts, closing its eyes, and creating the illusion of a tree stump.

There are 2 owls in this photo.  The owlet is just below mom's belly.  Can you see him too?  The photographer only saw him after looking at her photos.   Photo: Marina Scarr - Desoto Park, FLA

It was only when the photographer looked at this picture later that she spotted this great horned owl had a baby, tucked tightly into the feathers on its tummy. It was taken by wildlife photographer Marina Scarr in Fort De Soto Park, Florida

I have a weird thing for owls. They are majestic birds with wisdom in their eyes.
