Burrowing Owl

Burrowing Owls are long-legged, ground-dwelling owls. Adults are light brown, mottled with white. They have white throats and eyebrows, and yellow eyes. Immatures are light brown, less distinctively mottled than adults, and have buffy, unstreaked bellies. In contrast to most other owls and almost all other raptor species, females are smaller than males.
