Burrowing Owl

Despite my patience, this little Owl seemed just too tired to open its eyes wider than this. Taken at Shoreline Park, in Mountain View, CA, it seemed to be standing guard outside its den, about 20 feet from the road and 20 feet from the greens of a golf course. Hopefully neither of these two possible threats will effect the Owl (and perhaps its family).
