Driving around western Minnesota Saturday, Jude and I found a Burrowing Owl 12 feet west of the Minnesota state line, at the edge of a South Dakota farm field. The owl was next to a burrow. This species is rarely seen in Minnesota, and equally rarely ever seen close but not quite. We have photos to be posted tomorrow, Sunday.
