Burrowing Owls have become harder to find on Antelope Island State Park than they have been in the past so I was happy to spot this one three days ago. I wasn’t so happy to see that it was banded but it has also gotten more difficult to find Burrowing Owls on the island that aren’t. The banding program is to find out more information about Burrowing Owls because their populations are declining throughout the western United States.
I love the golden light and how the owl was turned towards the rising sun.
