Today I got to see a Long-eared owl in action. We had been looking for a while, when we saw it fly onto a tree.
I was fortunate enough to get this owl just after it caught a rodent. I was able to observe it eating it’s prey. Owls have a very unique way of consuming food. They swallow their prey whole.
They will regurgitate the parts of the animal that can’t be digested into a pellet. Owl pellets are interesting to look at. Long-eared owls feed heavily on rodents such as different types of mice, rats, and voles.
I am a nature-loving teen who photographs all the cool nature in Minnesota and around the world. My goal is to share my passion for the outdoors with others. I was an Outdoor Education Intern at Mississippi Gateway Regional Park in the summer of 2022 where I helped with the summer educational programs. I am also active with the Best Buy Teen Tech Center where I do coding, graphic design, photography, and 3D printing. A few of my photos have been published in a newsletter by the Minneapolis Parks Foundation. Minneapolis Parks and Rec has also published my nature photos on their Facebook page.
