Description

Stories are happening all around us, all the time, because we, humans, are affecting wildlife and natural systems all the time, no matter where we live. A raptor flying with wind turbines in the background; a brilliantly colored migrating songbird’s body at the foot of the glass window that killed it; a burrowing owl habitat cleared for construction; a road built over a critical salamander migration route. This photo shows small, long-legged burrowing owls that are found in open landscapes across North America. Unlike other owls, they live in burrows in the ground and are primarily active during the day.
