Owls - 55 fotos

16 comments | Post a comment | |

The Strigiformes (Owls) are an order of birds of prey, comprising 200 extant species. Most are solitary, and nocturnal, with some exceptions (e.g. the Burrowing Owl). Owls mostly hunt small mammals, insects, and other birds, though a few species specialize in hunting fish. They are found in all regions of the Earth except Antarctica, most of Greenland, and some remote islands. Though owls are typically solitary, the literary collective noun for a group of owls is a parliament.

The living owls are divided into two families, the typical owls, Strigidae, and the barn-owls, Tytonidae.

    Ampliando los ojos de los buho ses posible ver al fotografo. Sus ojos reflejan tanto la luz que si esta cerca se le ve perfectamente, como en el 13, 28, 29 y en los primeros planos
