Burrowing owls hunt in the daytime, especially early in the morning or late at night when most insects are out. Burrowing owls are named for the nests in the ground they live in, other owls live in trees.
They are the only owl that runs after its prey on the ground. They eat very small mammals and insects. The male burrowing owl finds a mate by offering her food, and then provides food for her chicks.
