Burrowing Owl

Burrowing Owl
The fine print on the sign:
"Birds and their nests are protected by federal and state law. Disturbance by people, pets or vehicles can be harmful to resting or nesting birds."

Protected species? My butt!

I took this picture in 2004. Unfortunately, even though those birds are protected, exactly at the same place where this owl burrow was 3 only years ago, there's the huge parking lot of a neighborhood WalMart store now. So much for "important bird site", and federal and state law.

Ich hoffe es!

Drueben hab ich mal Fotos von der Gegend reingestellt, wie es da jetzt aussieht. Da haben 2 Eulen direkt neben der Strasse zur Buecherei gesessen, und die Koepfe gingen nur immer verschreckt im Kreis herum, wenn da die Autos lang fuhren ... es ist wirklich traurig. Vor allem, weil normale Haeuser sozusagen um die Nester herum gebaut werden muessen - nur WalMart hat das natuerlich nicht noetig ...
