Bird in a Hole

Another business trip, more Burrowing Owls.

This time in Florida.

The directions to find them were easy. Go to the baseball fields on Pelican Boulevard (why not "Owl Boulevard"?) in Cape Coral and look for the white PVC pipes sticking out of the ground.

We were told that the owls sit in the opening of their burrows, watching the world. And that's where we found them.

We saw several sitting in their burrows, like this one here. We drove into the ball field parking lot, picked a spot, and didn't even need to get out of the car before we saw one checking us out.

They again seemed more interested in the birds flying around above, in this case Monk Parakeets, than about us.

Still the easiest owls to find in the wild.
