wise owl

Here is what a Burrowing Owl nest site looks like. Area is staked out and a small T-perch is provided. The little owls find insects and lizards in the weedy surrounding area.

Sage,
If you don't stop bragging about how cool it is down there in Ft. Myers, I might have to hop on a plane and fly down there and bop you on the head with my flip flops!
