The burrowing owl is one of Canada’s more endangered species and sightings are indeed very rare. We have been very fortunate to have had one brief encounter with the tiny, grassland-dwelling owl, but 2017 offered a second, much better opportunity to actually capture respectful images. While camping in Grasslands National Park in April, the burrowing owls return for the summer during our stay and, over two days, we were briefly able to watch as a mating pair hunted prairie dogs in the shared space both animals reside.
