Almost all owls are active only
at night however Burrowing Owls differ in the sense that they
are active during the day. They do most of their hunting in
the evenings as the sun is starting to go down.
Due to their small size they are vulnerable to many predators
including coyotes, foxes and other animals of similar size.
They prefer to inhabit the burrow created by another animal
although if forced to they have the ability to dig their own.
The Burrowing Owl has even been known to make its home in
man made pipes which are protruding from underground.
