It is also home Burrowing Owls. The burrows are marked with stakes and ropes. We found six or seven by driving around slowly. A pair were perched by the entrance to one burrow. In a couple of others, I could see (from a distance, so as not to disturb the birds) owl eyes looking out at me.
I found it remarkable that these birds could coexist with people and their recreational activities, but apparently they manage.
The park also provided the opportunity to carefully observe a pair of Loggerhead Shrikes as they went about their pre-nuptial activities. He brought insects to her as a demonstration of his ability to provide for her offspring - and hopefully his offspring as well.
