Early one morning in Southern Idaho, this little owl was just standing in the middle of the road, not walking or trying to fly away. Afraid that it would be hit by a car and killed, I called the local Fish & Game officer, who came to check out the little bird of prey. He found that it had been injured – probably clipped by a passing car, and took it to a rehabilitation facility to heal before it would later be released.

It appears to me to be a Burrowing Owl. It seemed too small to be a Barn Owl, though, me not being an owl expert, I really don’t know. I loved this photo, though, so I wanted to share it with you.

Does anyone know just what kind of owl this is? If so, leave a comment below.
