  1. I have one of these owls living on my property. they are interesting. The one here lives in an old squirrel burrow.

  2. "You’ve Never Seen an Owl Species That Does This" yes, I have. Burrowing owls were common in the Palo Alto Baylands.

  3. At the beginning this owl is like that little fella on the baseball game who stared at the camera then turned his head between his mum and the cam

  4. Only? Mmm, I don't know about that. There are some barn owls around here where I live that make their homes in some of the underground holes in this gulch. Definitely a cool find, but they're not the only ones!

  5. I actually live around a few of these, they use gopher tortoises abandoned homes and are far more adorable than this video shows.

  6. Soon others will follow his footsteps, literally, because there won't be any tree to nest in. For that matter, they'll be in luck if they just get burrowing ground.

  7. This is in Brazil, I would say in Cerrado. The vegetation and the exotic grass are very likely.

    Edit: ohh, it's in Colombia

  8. Notice when adults talk about species gender we only say "male" and "female" 👌 animals are not transgender, it's a scientific fact👌

  9. So because of global warming and unpredictable rains. You know this owl doesn't stand a chance. Minus the predators.

  10. Actually I have seen these owls before, there was one that burrowed in a field right next to the track at my high school in Florida, one time I got too close to its burrow and it freaking charged at me

  11. Grew up with these little guys. One of em used to play tag with my dog every morning. Sat on the rock wall, waited for the dog to run up and chase him, then would fly back down and chase him, too, taking turns. Never once hurt each other.

  12. You click baited me Smithsonian! I've seen tons of burrowing owls up here in Alberta (much more rare than they used to be 20 years ago when I was a kid). Grrrr.

    Beautiful video regardless though. They are a very cool bird.

  13. I thought this was common because I grew up near a park that just had them. For decades now. Like the birds just build burrows wherever they feel like it every year. They have a colony.

    I think park authorities tried to have them removed to another location, since this was a neighborhood park with kids, not a nature park, but found out these were special owls and just had to put caution tape around their burrows.

  14. Jumpin' Jesus on a pogo stick. Everybody knows the burrow owl lives in a hole, in the ground. Why the hell do you think they call it a burrow owl, anyway?
