These are Burrowing Owls. There really cool, I saw some in Miami.

Bizarrely, theres a group of them who live in the massive car park at the Dolphins Football Staduim.

Probably not as fucked up as you'd think. There are several species of ground owl which nest in burrows, seabirds which dig burrows or steal rabbit burrows, kiwis do, almost-flightless forest "chickens" which dig holes, bury their eggs and then use their beaks as a thermometer to keep the temperature exactly right, and various ground wasps and burrowing bees as well.

Also some areas don't have trees to build nests in.

I liked the essay that was going around a while back of the college student who wrote a paper for an ecology class about why the spotted owl was stupid for letting itself get killed.

bees frequently burrow into my mother's lawn, for some unknown reason.

I saw a bee the other day that was almost as big as my head. I was having a crap at the time, luckily it flew away, or I'd have faced a horrible dilemma

That would explain why you dig holes in the lawn to do your business in then. Does your mom's place at least have an outhouse?

I wonder if I can include a group of burrowing owls as part of the landscaping when we move. The homeowners association can't object.

I had an European Eagle Owl (largest in the World) on my arm - it only became a crisis when one of its talons started sinking in my arm...:cry:
