Burrowing Owl @ NCOS

Adrian O'Loghlen
 

There was a Burrowing Owl at North Campus Open Space this am (Wed).  It was flushed from one of the hibernacula on the north-facing slope on south side (restricted access area) of the slough by Hayden, one of the NCOS crew working in the area, and landed nearby at another hibernaculum.  This location is approximately 100 m west of the hibernaculum where one of the BUOW wintered last year.  I will try to find and report a location on the main north trail from which the hibernaculum that the current owl seems to be using can be seen.
