Saratoga Springs, Utah
(E-mails from Douglas Mead, 24 Mar 2013)
I was feeling owly this afternoon and took a drive south of Saratoga
Springs to check the Burrowing and Short-eared Owl sites I've been
watching for two years. The Short-eareds aren't here (yet), but two of the
6 Burrowing Owl sites had a male and female at the mouth of the
burrow so they are returning and preparing to nest. I've attached a
low-budget hastily-taken picture from my phone of one of the burrows. Two
owls are visible in the shot.
Due to the sensitive nature of these burrows I will share their locations
if contacted off-list serve.
