Burrowing Owl Guarding the Nest

Burrowing owls were at one time fairly common and widespread over western North America. Populations have declined and in some cases have disappeared due to human encroachment on their habitat. They are listed as endangered or threatened in a number of states and are endangered in Canada.
They do not dig their own burrows, but instead will “borrow” the vacated burrows created by prairie dogs and squirrels for nesting. The elimination/reduction of prairie dogs can cause the populations of the burrowing owls to collapse, further endangering them.
This burrowing owl is on alert for any threats to the nest.
