Here is some general information on the Burrowing
owl to help you get more familiar with this owl:
Burrowing owls have bright yellow
eyes. The beak can be between yellowish or greenish depending on the subspecies. The legs
are incompletely feathered and grayish in color. They lack ear tufts and have a flattened
facial disc. The owls have prominent white eyebrows and a white "chin" patch
which they expand and display during certain behaviors.
Adult owls have brown upperparts with white spotting. The breast and belly are white with
variable brown spotting or barring. Juvenile owls are similar in appearance, but they lack
most of the white spotting above and brown barring below. Also, the young owls have a buff
bar across the upper wing and their breast may be buffy rather than white.
Males and females are similar in size and appearance. However, adult males sometimes
appear lighter in color because they spend more time outside the burrow during daylight,
and their feathers become sun-bleached.
