Regarding Burrowing Owls on Marco Island's L:amplighter Court and vacinity,
I and others found five owls in that vacinity on January 10th about 8:00
a.m.  We also found one on our way to Tigertail beach on a vacant lot at
Kendall and Hernando.  It seems that the owls are best seen in the early
morning.

Good  birding,

Dave Thurston
