A Burrowing Owl hides behind some weeds and grass. Sadly, thanks to the eradication efforts of the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Denver International Airport-DIA, Burrowing Owls have become a scarce in the Denver area. Their decision to wipe out dozens of acres of Prairie Dog habitat have also wiped out this threatened species’ homes. Photo opportunities for them has plummeted as well. I did spot this one at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge recently although it refused to make itself fully visible.
