An owl at the feeder

This Eurasian Pygmy owl visited my feeder yesterday. It`s the smalest owl in europe . The lenght of this little owl is about 15 - 17 cm and the weigh about 50 - 65 g. It is a hunter who eats little birds nearly on it`s own size. And this owl likes to be out hunting in daytime. It sat in a three and enjoyed the sun. In minus 15 degrees all animals need a little warmth from the sun.
