Burrowing Owls

Who ever heard of such a thing?

This last week I have been going through some of my old and even older files.  These guys brought back some fond memories.  Their underground hut was in the back yard of a friend in Golden Valley Arizona.  My best back yard critter is worms!  When called that the  Owl young had hatched and were showing themselves above ground I was there in short order.  Early one morning, bright sunshine and about 99 degrees.  I felt like a lizard cooking my belly as I lay about 100′ from the birds hut.  I waited and waited.  Then two eyes appeared.  Then four.  And out came the little ones.  And right with them was Mom to look out for mean old cameraman!
