Young Explorers by iphelps Young Explorers by iphelps
Typically inhabiting the vacated underground dwellings of another animal, the female Burrowing Owl will lay an average of 3-12 eggs. Approximately three to four weeks later the young will hatch, and after another few weeks they will begin to leave the burrow to explore. I counted eight juvenile owls at this particular burrow. They all were very curious.


Burrowing Owls - Adams County, Washington

Here are some of my personal favorites from the rest of my gallery:

I remember this owl type from a demotivational poster.
One had his head twisted like the one in here, and the other had a very unamused face.
The captions were "Retards. We all know one." XD
