A small population of Florida Burrowing Owls live in the River Lakes Wildlife Management Area operated by the St Johns River Water Managment District. My friend Charlie and I have been visting them approximately weekly this Spring to observe and capture on digital film their behavior during mating season. We hope that at least one pair has eggs underground in a burrow.
With a long telephoto lens and a teleconverter, I have been able to capture these photos without scaring the birds. They watch people with curiousity - as long as we keep our distance.
