A Burrowing Owl and Prairie Dog keep watch on a pair of Swainson’s Hawks that were casing their neighborhood.
I was taking pictures of these two today when all of the Prairie Dogs started ‘barking’ incessantly. A look up revealed why as the two hawks circled repeatedly, likely looking for a meal. The Prairie Dogs all soon disappeared into their burrows while the owl didn’t seem particularly worried.
Taken north of Denver International Airport.
