Part III — Before leaving the west coast of Florida I went to Coral Gables in search of Burrowing Owls. I was shocked to find that many of the burrows that I’d visited in previous years were no longer there. Instead, houses were built or being built.
Part I — Burrowing Owls are one of the smallest owls of the 171 species known world-wide. Adults will weigh between 5 - 8.5 ounces with a wing span up to 21". They are the only owl that lives underground.
