The post title says it all. Despite valiant efforts by maybe at least a dozen birders both today and yesterday the Miller County BURROWING OWL remains a no show since last seen on the 24th.
The owl was last seen on the 24th during the day and at dusk, at the burrow located at:
Decimal Degrees (WGS84) 31.1293, -84.8632
GPS N 31 7.758 W 84 51.792
This location is in the middle of the area marked .1 miles to the north and .1 miles to the south on both sides of the road with pink flagging tape. Per the instructions in the original post by Bill Lotz it is requested that you not park or get out of your vehicle, or walk into the .2 mile stretch of roadsides marked with the flagging tape. Previously the owl had left the site for at least one period of four days and then returned, so there may yet be hope that the bird will do so again this year!
As most know there is a male Vermilion Flycatcher And a Say's Phoebe in the area of the farm buildings a few hundred yards north of the north pink flagging tape, these great hopefully not consolation birds can be very near or a bit far away. My checklist with some distant photos (usually it's always best to zoom an eBird checklist for a better look at photos):
