Up in the tree!
It's an itty, bitty raptor!
How itty, bitty? Well, the SDP editorial team's trusty 'Birds of Florida' book indicates burrowing owls are a mere 9 1/2 inches tall. I've only observed them on the ground or flitting a few feet to roost on a post. So, seeing this little guy fly several yards to a nearby tree -- and sit awhile -- was quite a treat. He blends in quite nicely, don't you think? Happy Hump Day, everyone!
