About the Burrowing Owl
Burrowing Owl

The Burrowing Owl is a small species owl with long legs that can be found throughout parts of North and South America. They nest and roost in burrows in the ground, like those excavated by prairie dogs. They will also dig their own burrows.

Unlike most owls, you'll find Burrowing Owls active during the day. They tend to avoid the mid-day heat and still hunt mostly during dusk and dawn.

The range of the Burrowing Owl is very large, but habitat loss threatens the species. The conservation status is Least Concern as of April 2014, but the population trend is decreasing.
