I didn’t know there was such a thing as burrowing owls. “True to its name, the Burrowing Owl nests in a hole in the ground. Although it is quite willing to dig its own burrow, it often uses one already provided by prairie dogs, skunks, armadillos, or tortoises.” reference
There are several of these burrows in Cape Coral and the species is protected.
