shows 3 different Burrowing Owls seen in Kuna ID, near the
Birds of Prey Center. All three were on posts viewing
their realm. We think the first owl, with a lighter
appearance than the others, may be a male with bleached
feathers. The second owl, distinctly darker, was seen on
the post (in 1st video) and then flew down to the grasses (2nd
video). The third owl, seen later as we left, flew off
the post and out of view.
shows the owl on the ground, bobbing its whole body.
This behavior may indicate disturbance, but it might also
provide better views and judgements of surroundings. The
owl calms quickly and scratches its head.
