IUCN Conservation Status: Least Concern
True to its name, the Burrowing Owl nests in a hole in the ground. Although it is quite willing to dig its own burrow, it often uses one already provided by prairie dogs, skunks, armadillos, or tortoises.
Song is a two-note coo coooo.
Gives series of rattles clucks, and chatters.
