Owls sure are curious creatures. They sleep all day and hunt all night. They’re always giving you that blank, wide-eyed stare. And their usual vocal response to just about anything? “Who.” That’s right. It’s basically just another question. They are darned cute though.
The burrowing owl might even be more curious. Unlike most owls, you most likely won’t find them hiding out in barns or perching up in trees. They, instead, nest in tiny burrows in the ground and, also unlike your typical owl, they are awake most of the day and sleep at night just like us. That’s one strange bird.
What you may not know, however, is that burrowing owls are excellent dancers. Yup, that’s right. When the beat drops these beautiful birds know to move it, move it like nobody’s business.
Luckily for us, there’s visual evidence of this.
