Burrowing Owl

Avondale 2 MAIN & BLOG

Burrowing Owls have been rapidly losing habitat, as development takes over desert. These little owls, who make their burrows in the ground, do have some people on their side – rescuers are making “homes” for them with pipes in the ground, in sheltered areas. The little owls often, but not always, adapt quite well. Shot with a telephoto lens, I did not get too close to this one who was obviously leery of me.
