The Burrowing owl is a very endangered bird. There are only around 600 mating pairs left in Canada, there native land. That number is down from about 3000 in 1988. They are experiencing a sharp decline because of a loss of habitat and pesticide poisoning.
The Mexican Spotted Owl is another highly endangered species. It lives exclusively in old-growth forests around Utah, Colorado, Arizona, and New Mexico. It’s threatened by rapid loss of these forests to human development, often resulting in starvation. Fire is also a problem, and low juvenile survival rates make it harder for the species to fight back and adapt.
This is made even sadder by the fact that these owls have a serious case of the cute, as seen in the photograph below.
