Barn Owl with Vole, Colorado
I felt lucky to get this shot of a barn owl with a catch. I had waited and waited for her to appear, and then suddenly, there she was, and I had just taken a couple pics of her, when she disappeared for an instant and then she was back with the vole! Photo taken north of Boulder, Colorado with the use of flash, since it was pitch dark outside.
“Barn Owls nest and roost in cavities, abandoned barns and other buildings, and dense trees. At night, Barn Owls hunt by flying low, back and forth over open habitats, searching for small rodents primarily by sound.” — Cornell Labs
