"Burrowing Owl"

With its short tail and long legs, the burrowing owl is a specialist that breeds on the prairies of central and eastern Montana. The Montana population has seen a slight decline while the owls practically disappeared just across the border in Canada, due to habitat loss and insecticide use related to commercial farming.
