BURROWING OWL NEAR NEST

The Burrowing Owl has become an endangered species throughout much of its former range because of the over-use of pesticides. The owl feeds primarily on grasshoppers which makes it a secondary target of some of the chemicals used by farmers to rid their fields of those pests. Where grasshoppers are abundant, the owl won't be far behind.
