Burrowing Owls are disappearing from our landscape at an alarming rate. Their habitats and hunting grounds are being taken over for construction projects, the needs of which are debatable. Pesticides used in farming and gardening not only poison their food source, it eventually poisons the owls. Photographers can be just as guilty in aiding in their demise by not keeping a respectful distance.

Burrowing Owls are listed as endangered, threatened, or "of concern" in nine US States, while listed as endangered in Canada and threatened in Mexico.

Where these little guys are located, the last open space in a residential development, there used to be numerous breeding pairs. This year, they are the only ones to return.

Mama on the right, Papa (lighter feathers) on the left.

Early morning capture, hence the wet feathers! Personally I love the intense stare, the wet feathers and the attitude!
