Foreboding - Burrowing Owl
14 inches wide x 20 inches high

“In a colony of burrowing owls, different individuals will take turns being the ‘watch owl’ that warns the other members of perceived danger. These owls are ground dwellers and the guard will often take a higher position to better observe the surroundings. I watched this little guy standing on a post in the last light before a thunderstorm moved into the area. While the owl was not sounding the alarm call, the foreboding sky tells the story of imminent severe weather.
