Today we stopped by The Burrowing Owls.  These are one of the coolest, and calmest birds we see.  They are always just chilling, hanging out. Bill



The burrowing owl (Athene cunicularia), also called the shoco, is a small, long-legged owl found throughout open landscapes of North and South America. Burrowing owls can be found in grasslandsrangelands, agricultural areas, deserts, or any other open, dry area with low vegetation.[3] They nest and roost in burrows, such as those excavated by prairie dogs (Cynomys spp.). Unlike most owls, burrowing owls are often active during the day, although they tend to avoid the midday heat. Like many other kinds of owls, though, burrowing owls do most of their hunting during dusk and dawn, when they can use their night vision and hearing to their advantage. Living in open grasslands as opposed to forests, the burrowing owl has developed longer legs that enable it to sprint, as well as fly, when hunting.

Good morning Bill. Must say, we can all learn something from the Burrowing Owls about calmness. Enjoy your day.

Good morning Bill,

You are really educating on so many owls at the zoo. This video is wonderful and I agree with Wayne Martin "we can all learn something from the Burrowing Owls about calmness."

Those are some cool looking owls.  On occasion, my dad has an owl that visits his house and sits in the eaves.  It does wonders to keep all of the pigeons away!

Zoos can be a very nice way to pass time. The burrowing owls just seem to stare and wonder what you are looking at?

the owls are beautiful and might be an under appreciated animal to see at the zoo. Also, nice elephant photo lol
