I discovered a cute little owl two lots over from our rental house sitting on a mound of soil in this vacant lot.
Eileen at Viewing Nature with Eileen told me it is a burrowing owl.
A couple of days later we had storm at night with lots of rain and the two were outside waiting for the burrow to dry no doubt.
I'm thinking this is the male who is always on the lookout.
And the smaller female.
There are other burrows in the neighbourhood and I imagine they'll all have a sign like this eventually.I'll be linking with Saturday's Critters , thank you for hosting Eileen!
