Re: High Elevation Burrowing Owl
This fairly large grassland along Hwy. S7 (aka East Grade Rd.) is named Dyche Valley on the USGS topographic map covering it. It would be good Burrowing Owl habitat but certainly on the cool side now. However, Birds of North America Online says scattered winter records exist as far north as Montana.
