      Burrowing owls: the most down-to-earth of intellectual birds.

      I’m partial to this fellow I found on Wikimedia Commons a few years ago.

          What help do you want? You can use the Image button to add an image, or you can link to an image and it will show up in the comment. Masking the link will defeat the latter.

          • FoolishOwl says:

            Specifically, I’d wanted that image linked to my prior comment. I ended up downloading it, than attaching it using the “Image” button.

            Masking, as in putting in HTML tags or BBCode? If so, that would have been the problem I was having.

          • Antinous / Moderator says:

            You can’t add an image to a prior comment by using the Image button, but you can retroactively stick a URL in, and I think that will work.. And the auto-image-load function is presumably triggered by URLs that end in jpg, etc. Maybe. So if you mask it, it doesn’t know that it’s an image and doesn’t load it.

    And Superb Owl graffiti in Athens (where they definitely know that owls are more superb than some kind of bowl).

    I was upset that my daughter’s homework assignment for this weekend was to watch something called the superbowl. Now I understand her true assignment, and I am eager to help her get a good grade! Thanks, BB for saving the day!

    Rio Rancho, New Mexico. This great horned owl and its mate nested at one of the local public schools where I am a teacher. We have had presidents, film crews and celebrities visit our campus. This family of owls, by far, were our most distinguished guests.

    Here’s a picture of a Barred Eagle Owl I took in Sumatra (Near the Orangutan sanctuary at Bukit Lawang). He wasn’t feeling too superb when I took the shot, but still, it’s an owl.
