Burrowing Owls (18 by 24" acrylic on gessoboard)
These iconic Grassland owls are a favorite of many who share a passion for the Grasslands region. Here a pair is depicted around a burrow perhaps dug out by a larger mammal such as a fox. These owls are unique in a sense as they are the only owls in Canada to nest underground in burrows created by mammals such as Prairie dogs, Badgers, and/or foxes.
