I was given the approximate location of these guys but when I was looking for them I drove right past.
Its funny because they were no more than 8 feet off the side of the road right out in the open. I was looking for a mound of dirt. Silly me.
I cant tell which is which in my pics now but I figured I would share. There were 3 fledgelings.

2 in this pic. I cant tell if its mom and a fledge or 2 little ones

Beautiful captures and a wonderful set, Jeremy. Those eyes are magnificent, aren't they, as are the expressions.

Great set, Jeremy. Interesting how the Western version of the Burrowing Owl is quite a bit darker in colour than the Florida bunch.

There will be days when you get the shot(s) you missed days, months or years before.

Thanks guys.
Ian, our owls are darker. Perhaps its a desert dirt thing?
Andrew, I love their eyes. All owls are so fascinating to me.

Beautiful trio of captures Jeremy!
I agree that owls are such a neat group of birds and burrowers rank near the top for me. That third image with the crouch is just such a neat pose with great clarity as well. Excellent as always!
