For this month, I am going to share a visit I made recently. I did a similar visit 2 years ago with friends and I have always wanted to go back, but it is a drive to an area I do not know well and it is at least an hour south from where I live. However, I decided to do my homework, plan my trip and execute it on Friday. Camera was packed up and off I headed south to visit these tiny tiny little birds who live in the ground.
Burrowing Owls are typically found in areas with low vegetation and dry weather. These owls are no bigger than a ruler and have to be the cutest little critters I have seen. They burrow holes in the ground to make their home and can be seen during the course of the day. I probably got there at about 10:30 AM and started the process of walking to the various holes that were cordoned off. Burrowing Owls are a protected species in Florida and you will be fined if you encroach into the cordoned off area.
So here are some of the photo’s that I took on this particular day.
Since there was not too much activity, I walked to a few more holes, before heading back to the entrance to go up the hill. I spotted this little one hanging out in the shade of a fire hydrant. It’s eye’s got quite big as I approached.
I had a great trip – it was worth the drive, and on my way home, I stopped at the South African shop and bought a few home goodies to munch on. Overall it was a good day.
