    Our favorite place on the island, is the great beach at the Boca Grandi. The water is the best, and its very quiet.

    We are very lucky. We see them every time we play golf up at the old Aruba Golf Club. They burrow in the ground beside a couple of the sand greens. It is funny, they come out of the burrows and watch you putt.
    I'll try to get some pictures of them when we are here in a few more weeks.

    We see them every year at Divi Village. They have a home in what looks like a hole in a hill, located on the way to the infinity pool. We thought they would be in jeopardy while all the construction was going on, but they actually worked around them!! So cool.

    The pictures are cute and all but they are also scary. These Owls are supposed to be burrowed in rough coral rock. I will try to see what is going on. Could be overpopulation or it could be habitat destruction.

    I've never seen one -- do they stay in hiding, or do you you see them now and then! (maybe I just thankfully haven't been looking!)
