Looks to melike someone got together with someone who should not have!

Makes me think about Saturday morning Looney Toones and all that talk of Chicken Hawks!

Looks like a Burrowing Owl. Peterson says: "A small owl of open country, often seen by day standing erect on the ground or on posts. Note the long legs (for an owl). About the size of a Screech Owl (9"-11"); barred and spotted, white chin stripe, round head, stubby tail. Bobs and bows when agitated. At nite has a coo sound higher than a morning dove.

Actually the images are geotagged - They were captured in Aruba while my family was enjoying the beach, I sneaked out back to the open fields behind the hotel
