Owl In Action

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.

If you’re interested in binoculars, these are the ones I use. I really like them. https://amzn.to/3Gs13lf
