I had heard rumors and even saw a few pictures over the last couple of months of a Burrowing Owl that apparently failed to head south for the season. While I drive by the spot regularly on my wildlife outings, I had yet to see it myself – until today.
A friend (thanks, Bill!) tipped me off that he had spotted it this morning so after work I gave it a shot and sure enough, the little guy was out and about. Thick cloud cover required high ISOs and thus grainy pictures but not too bad of a series. Taken in Adams County, Colorado.
