Received an email alert about a Burrowing Owl found in Monroe County Illinois and was out the door quickly. This is a western bird and very rare this far east. The first thumb shows the Burrowing Owl, white spot just left of center of right clump. Also few Bobolinks and Dickcissels in the area.

I'm just an amateur that loves to capture the beauty around us. Nothing escapes me, be it bugs, animals, especially birds, landscapes, sunsets, infrared or macros, if it’s moving or not. After retiring from the Aerospace industry after 40 years I've been able to concentrate on birding and photographing them.
