Burrowing Owl with Extra Set of Eyes

Burrowing owl at Veteran's Oasis Park in Chandler, AZ. Not sure about the dark color. Juvy? (Update: some think this bird may have been dyed or otherwise artificially colored. I've notified the wildlife authorities who are attempting to spot the bird and assess whether the color is natural and whether its health has been impacted. The bands would indicate its had some human contact). Thought the extra set of eyes peering up over the horizon was interesting (it's actually in front of the dark one). Canon 60D with Sigma 150-500mm lens, tripod.
