I have received several emails about the specific location of the Burrowing Owl. After seeing it yesterday morning and photographing it from my pickup window i went back a couple of hours later. There were two cars parked at the location in the road. They had gotten out of their cars trying to photograph or to get a closer look. I talked to them and they said they had caused it to fly far out into a field and then it flew again out of site. I decided then not to reveal the location. I hope everyone will understand that this owl is being seen by other people at the refuge and is being disturb enough. I have seen owl postings on OBOL in the past and have privately emailed to find out the location and the people have denied to tell me. I respect and understand their position. Happy Birding, Jim Leonard.
