The Burrowing Owl, named for its habit of nesting underground, can be found in open grasslands throughout North and South America. Bill Kominsky, SideKick360 winner for May 23rd, found this beauty near his home.

"This image was taken at Brian Piccolo Park here in South Florida, and is famous for the Burrowing Owls. Using my Nikon D3 with a 500mm lens, I lay in the dirt and moved very quietly so as not to disturb them or impact the area." - Bill
