Meet Yoda (19)
|PHILIPPINE SCOPS-OWL Otus megalotis. A very beautiful owl with the typically intricate plumage and ear-tufts of a Scops, a black and white frosting on the face and breast and piercing orange eyes. An adult can grow to only 20 cm in height. If I can say this, it is cutest owl I have ever scene.|
This is Yoda, an adult owl, surrendered to the wildlife rescue center of SBMA Philippines by a family which once had it as a pet.
Yoda just woke-up for this photoshoot. It's eyes are supposed to be big like those of the other owls. In this photo and all the other photos I took of it, its eyes were squinting. Yoda is so photogenic you might see it again in some other posts I will be making for the next days.
