It is with a sad heart that I report the absence of our adorable burrowing owls that resided across the street from the Palm Creek main entrance. I used to see them without fail every morning on my way to work but I haven't spotted them for the last three weeks or so. Don saw a rabbit entering the hole today and I have observed rabbits near the entrance on several occasions. Thus, I sadly conclude that our owls are gone. I can only hope that they found a better nesting site and didn't come to any harm.
