Continued from Burrowing Owl, Center For Birds of Prey, 1
New to the educational program at the Center for Birds of Prey since the last time I was there was a Burrowing Owl.
The little Burrowing Owl (about 5 ounces, 150gm) is quite striking.
Scanning the sky for safety, the Burrowing Owl was aware of any movement overhead.
The presenters are also on the lookout for hawks and other predators which have been known to drop in on their programs. On this day we only saw Black Vultures and Anhinga passing by.
Without any apparent preparation, the owl dropped into flight.
