The soft, downy feathers of the owl permit it to wing its way through the air with as little noise as a falling leaf. The Screech Owl, {Otus asio).âThis little horned owl is our commonest species, and frequents the neighborhood of dwellings and orchards. Being nocturnal it is more com- mon than is generally supposed, and its curious cry, which is not a screech, but a musical, quavering series of notes, is the cause most frequently leading to its discovery. Its two phases of plumage, red and gray, occur independently of sex, age or season. Its food consists of mice and insects. The Florida Burrowing Owl, {Speotyto cunicularia flori- dana).âThe habits of the Florida Burrowing Owl differ somewhat from those of its western congener. There being no prairie-dogs in Florida, these birds make all their exca- vations for themselves. These are about six feet in depth, and at the end the round, white eggs are laid, usually six in number. The anomalous habits of these birds and their curious little gnome-like faces make them interesting in- mates of a zoological garden..
