Persistence Pays Off For Burrowing Owls
MARCH 23, 2016
As I opined in my post back in 2010 (and continue to preach) the Western Burrowing Owl needs a conservation plan. Above is a photo of the only Burrowing Owl ( Athene cunicularia ) seen at Tuscan Preserve back in February of 2010 when a group of concerned birders installed eight artificial burrows on this property, to be preserved in perpetuity. A pair of Burrowing Owls fledged six young! The owl can enter the tunnel at one end and escape through the other end if necessary.
