My last few postings about a local band of burrowing owls was more about the trial and tribulations of their lives in a habitat continually being squeezed by urban development. Whether under threat of a housing development or a community center, the tone was less than upbeat as I waded through red tape and alternating project managers in an ongoing plight to ensure their survival.
And with that said I had not actually planned to breach the burrowing owl topic so soon, but I came across a video that is nothing more than a feel good burrowing owl moment. So, sit back and take a close-up look at a burrow in Washington state that is home to 12 successfully reared owlets.
By the way, glad to see the parents are ever so attentive as a predator soars above their heads!
