My friend, Alan Knothe, took me to the area where the owl was being seen; a broad, sandy beach on the far western end of the island. As we walked along the beach, Alan spotted the bird under this boardwalk. It came out to watch us as we got closer. Burrowing Owls really do nest in holes in the ground and we were speculating that the depression under the boardwalk might seem like a good spot to this owl.
