Tunneling owls live in openings deserted by different creatures. They eat bugs and little rodents primarily. Tunneling owls are slim, lengthy-legged birds around 20 cm long. They are brown with little white spots, a white face and temples, and yellow eyes.

Polyphemus Moth

The polyphemus moth can be distinguished from other Saturniidae by its shading, which changes from pale to dull brown and is sometimes ruddy or grayish. Each of its wings has a slight scale-like "wind" called an eyespot.

Blue Catfish

The blue catfish is a significant waterway fish, leaning toward short chutes, pools with perceptible momentum, and residue-free sand, rock, and rubble substrates in Missouri.

Eskimo Curlew

Curlews are streaked, dark, or earthy-colored birds with long necks and genuinely lengthy legs. They breed inland in calm and sub-Arctic districts of the Northern Hemisphere and relocate far south.

Piping Plover

The funnel-billed plover is a sparrow-sized shorebird. It is around five to seven creeps long. It is sandy brown-dim on its back and white on its underside.

Jumping Mouse

Hopping mice measure 13–26 grams and are 8–11 cm long, excluding the long, hairless tail. Their reactive fur is fine or gritty, with brown on top from snout to backside, grayish to rust-colored sides, and white underparts.
