burrowing owls

mactavish is a bird-lover and she happened upon a burrowing owl recently. She shares amusing info about burrowing owls:

Burrowing owls are protected here (like most non-game wild birds) but they're incredibly easy to move. They use tunnels -- mostly existing ground-mammal holes -- to nest in, and when a developer finds out a site has owls, construction must stop. They find another site, sink PVC pipe at angles into the ground, and say, "Here owls, take these!" and the owls say, "Yay, holes!" and move into their new condos.

I am already picturing owl condos -- with homeowners meetings and everything.
