This is a Little Owl, as opposed to a little owl, though it is both little and an owl. One of the most common Owls around old structures in Europe, or Portugal as here. It likes eves and piles of stones. The early morning light caught this one at the roadside on the dirt track to Alvares Portugal, near Mértola in the Alentejo region. Sony RX10iv at 600mm. 1/1000th @ f7.1 @ ISO 100. Processed in Photoshop Express. On the next to last day of my birding and photo adventure with Birds and Nature Tours Portugal.
