Burrowing Owls

My project is on the endangered Burrowing owls. I have a paper mache burrow, a stuffed owl and things like pellets and feathers.




What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

Baby burrowing owls can make the same sound as a rattle snake. We lose about 22% of the burrowing owls population per year. Burrowing Owls bob their head when exited or distresed.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

Endangered animals need to be helped. We can't stop animals from being endangered fully, but we can help.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

Burrowing Owls live in burrows, I live in my basement, same thing right? I can't fly sadly, but burrowing owls can. It's kinda hard to compare my life to a burrowing owl... 😅
