Look closely at the male's beak (right), and will notice that he is holding an insect. During courtship, the male Eastern Screech Owl will bring "gifts" to his respective mate, in an attempt to woo her. Photographed in Winfield, PA, USA.
This picture is shown in the 4:5 ratio format. If ordering a 1:1 ratio option, you will lose a bit of the right margin, without impacting the visual appeal.
