Baby Birdorable: Burrowing Owl

July 2nd, 2010 in Baby Birds, Owls 1 comment

If you think our Birdorable birds are cute as adults, what about when they are babies? Below are some baby photos (shared via Flickr) of the Burrowing Owl. As you might guess, Burrowing Owls nest in holes in the ground. The burrows they are often dug out by mammals, such as prairie dogs. Two to twelve eggs are typically laid and incubation lasts up to 30 days. Fledging occurs about 44 days after hatching.
