Burrowing Owls

During my visit to Lubbock, TX a couple of weeks ago, saw my first burrowing owls while checking out the local prairie dogs.  They are very cute little owls with bright yellow eyes that use abandoned prairie dog burrows.

Pulled my car up along a fence line and shot between the rows of barbed wire out the car window.  It was lots of fun and I’m looking forward to going back again sometime in the future.
