SUBJECT: Burrowing Owls of Cape Coral, Florida

 

Burrowing Owl Chick - Owlet
A Burrowing Owl chick emerges from its burrow surveying the landscape for photographers.

Jo and I traveled to Florida in April for this year's spring migration trip. It's been a while since we visited Florida — It's a great place for birding, but always congested and touristy. But, that's one of the reasons why it's such a great place for birds...they're used to people.

Over the next few months, I'll be sharing some of our highlights of the trip and to start things off, one of our first stops was Cape Coral, FL to photograph and video the Burrowing Owls that can be found throughout the town.

Without further ado, please enjoy some of the many images taken of these owls. Please be sure to scroll all the way down and watch the video at the end.
