Sitting in a blind for three hours in the hot sun is not fun unless you have some hot action that you are watching. And hot action it was - seven baby Burrowing owls was intertaining for me as I watched them do all kinds of stuff. I shot a total of 1200 photos in the three hours.
Here all seven of the owletts are outside the burrow looking for what trouble they can get into. The one on the right has caught a beetle and is eating it.
One little guy does not like the heat of the sun and is always trying to get in the shade of a sibling.
Everytime a bird or a plane would fly over they would watch the sky intently. Here all four that were out of the nest watches a plane fly over.
When the parents who usually sat on a nearby sage, would sound the alarm, all would head down the burrow.
Here one little guy tries out its wings, while another one watches and gives advise from the back seat. Just like a bunch of teen-agers.
Spending just another day in the wilds of Idaho. Entertainment at its finest.
