Burrowing Owl and Pampas Grass in Serra da Canastra NP, Brazil I just returned from a visit to South-east Brazil and one of the highlights was Serra da Canastra NP, featuring the amazing Brazilian Cerrado (Savanna). I shall be loading more pictures over the next few weeks of some of the amazing creatures I was able to photograph, but here is a great starter to set the mood. I love Burrowing Owls and they are very common and easy to see there. Athene cunicularia,Brazil,Burrowing Owl,Geotagged,Serra da Canastra,Spring Click/tap to enlarge Promoted
