Burrowing Owl

Athene Cunicularia

Living in burrows in the ground 
To keep predators away, mimicking a rattlesnake's sound
On the Southern boundaries of the United States & Mexico, it's found

    One can rarely see an owl. How big can owls be?

      Owl sizes vary among species. For example, the Elf Owl is less than 6″ tall, while owls such as the Great Horned Owl , can grow up to 25″ tall.
