    Burrowing Owls, video

    I finally captured some decent video of Aruba's burrowing owls. On my blog like the rest. They're very skittish and difficult to find. I happened upon this pair because they built their nest at the bottom of a sand pile and kind of stuck out. YouTube degrades the video a little, but you can see them. Sort of move like Charlie Chaplin this pair does.

    Bon dia.

    I love those little guys! We always see a few on our morning walk along Eagle Beach at an old beach club (now sales office for condos) near Oceania. Took this photo of a couple on the last trip:
