    Small friend found during a hike

    This guy was so friendly, not scared of me at all. I brought him home to photograph. I fed him some chicken giblets before I let him go.
    It's a glaucidium gnoma, dwarf owl.

    For such a cutie it sure has some big talons and a sharp beak, I think it has a dark side Luke Skywalker
    Campfires are best shared with friends.
