A Little Bird Told Me

“If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, we have at least to consider the possibility that we have a small aquatic bird of the family anatidae on our hands.”

Another owl, a Pygmy owl, which is the smallest of the European owls, buries itself in the snow in Oulu, Finland. The Pygmy owl was perching high in a pine tree before flying back to play in the snow.

Mr Peltomaki added: “The Pygmy owl was looking down intensively for about 30 seconds - obviously it heard a vole under the snow - then it very quickly dived in to the deep soft snow, very close to me. First its head was under the snow when it was looking for vole and it was almost completely covered. The whole hunting sequence lasted 15 seconds and the owl looked very satisfied when it flew off with a vole. I was thrilled to witness and capture this scene on camera.”
