A Parliament Of Burrowing Owls   Leave a comment

Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge lies in northern Utah, where the Bear River flows into the northeast arm of the Great Salt Lake. The Refuge protects the marshes found at the mouth of the Bear River, providing a critical habitat for migrating birds. More than 250 species move through this area annually by the millions to rest and feed, including this group of burrowing owls, called a parliament. Photo by Katie McVey, USFWS.
