I went out to Point Reyes recently looking for badgers and anything else worth photographing. I didn’t see any badgers. However, one benefit in looking for badgers is that you sometimes find burrowing owls using the badger holes or burrows. Most of the time when I spot a burrowing owl the only part of it I see is its head and yellow eyes staring at me. This owl was kind enough to do more than peek out the front door.
I sometimes wonder what happens if burrowing owls go into holes that have badgers or weasels in them. I know I won’t stick my hand down one of those holes.
