San Bernardino NWR Headquarters has Baby Burrowing Owls
Southwest Region, August 15, 2007
Print Friendly Version

In May of this year, in partnership with Wild at Heart, the refuge installed several burrow sites for the purpose of relocating burrowing owls that were displaced from their homes in Phoenix.  13 adults were released on the 100+ acres of land surrounding the headquarters.  At the time of their release it was noted that the females were carrying eggs and in late June with the use of a video scope it was confirmed that the females had laid eggs.  In August, refuge staff got their first look at the new arrivals.  Several juvenile owls have been seen around the burrow sites and accompanying parents on hunting trips around the headquarters grounds.
