Video: Burrowing Owl puts on a courtship display

As promised…. Very cool video of this Burrowing Owl. Best of all, some behavior not often seen as it performs a courtship display. He was hanging out on his burrow when another male nearby began a mating / courtship call. Not to be outdone, this owl hopped on top of a mullein plant and began calling as well. I took tons of pics but he was so cooperative I switched to video for a bit. It is kind of shaky as I was resting the camera on my truck window and zoomed in fully. Still fun to see and hear.
