This is (of course) a Northern Pygmy Owl. I just love these little creatures (6 inches from top to toe), and their song in the spring looking for a mate. And this little guy (?) sure was singing. But not towards us looking on, he was calling away from us which was frustrating, since butt shots are not a favorite..... But then he turned his head 180 degrees around, for a very brief moment, while a small cloud passed by the cut out the harsh glare from the sun and I fired away and got a few images before he turned his head back to calling for that special her (?). Then I came home and realized after awhile that the body of the Owl had not turned and it was just the head that was heading in the wrong direction, its neat that they can do that, isn't it?
