Burrowing Owls

In Florida burrowing owls are a semi common occurrence. For a Virginia resident it was a great occasion to see some different wildlife and a different ecosystem. Burrowing owls are found in their home burrows spread through the area and are often found in populated places such as schools, parks, and playground areas. They spend most of their time sitting near their burrows on the ground or on low perches hunting insects and small animals and they are one of the owl species that is active mostly during the day.
