Fiesta Island Burrowing Owl

While searching the shrubbery on the southern part of Fiesta Island looking for the longspurs (which I was unable to find), I flushed an adult Burrowing Owl. It flew about 10 yards before landing and allowed for a few pictures to be taken. It then took off again and landed several hundred yards away.
