The Female Calls to her Mate!
We carefully watched these 2 pygmy owls for a morning, on a hill adjacent to a farm property, south of San Jose, Costa Rica.
The Male was more active, flying form perch to perch, the female would call once in a while to possibly guard the area., as their nest site was close by. Being careful not to disturb them, we came in and left quietly. these birds seemed totally indifferent to our presence.
A shot of the 2 mating, (posted earlier) was so cool, as this was the first time for me to see owls mating. Hopefully another chance in the future!
Thanks to everyone for looking, commenting, and sharing my images!
Kind regards, and have a very good week!
