Burrowing owls: The bonus tracks

Here are some additional photos to accompany my recent burrowing owl article in Smithsonian Magazine.

These are images of biologist Jack Barclay banding burrowing owls that were nesting in artificial burrows at the margins of a golf course in Davis, CA.




And finally, one more image from wildlife photographer Susan McConnell.



  1. Hi John,

    Thanks for sharing some behind the scenes photos. And on the banding topic, if anyone encounters a banded owl please report it to The North American Bird Banding Program of the USGS…it helps with their conservation!

  2. Thanks, Scott. Great idea.
