As we drove through the crowded neighborhoods it seemed like Everyone had a burrowing owl perch in their yard but I didn't see a single owl. We only spent maybe an hour searching for an owl before other plans took hold but I was disappointed in not finding one. A few weeks later I heard that there were a nesting pair literally a few miles from my work. Off I drove to the small elementary school in search of their owls. I drove right around the car pick-up section and to my surprise they were right there. A whole burrowing owl family! The parents were guarding their little owlets. Needless to say, you don't have to look far to find your prize.
