Burrowing owls are native to South and North America, often living in open grassy areas. On this planet  the burrowing owl is the only owl that lives in burrowing holes. These owls are special because they are not nocturnal and are actually awake during the day.  The IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources) classifies these animals as ‘least concern’ however they are classified as endangered in Canada which is why Canada created the Migratory Bird Treaty Act to protect them.
