Hi folks,
 
Just wanted to let you know that there are burrowing owls on SR 675, just opposite a new development (Foxwood something); a few miles east of Parrish.  I've seen them there now on three separate occasions as my husband drove by and wouldn't stop (not a birder, obviously). Yesterday, in the rain, I was driving alone so of course I stopped,  right alongside a very wet and disgruntled looking owl perched on the fencepost, just a few feet from the road.  This is a great place to see them, as there is very sparse traffic most of the time.   I have seen at least two on the fenceposts at different times.
