Today was the Cape Coral Burrowing Owl Festival and I took a ride over to check it out. I applaud the efforts of conservationists to raise funds to help preserve habitat and support research of these cute little owls. The festival though lacked a focus on Burrowing Owls and instead had a general air of chaos with tents of mixed tables of educational resources, vendors, and nonprofit organizations. There were two Eastern Screech Owls making an appearance and one stuffed Burrowing Owl. So, after leaving, we drove around town and found our own.

After returning from the drive over the bridge and back to Fort Myers, I took a quick ride over to the 'canal' behind some near by houses and found a few fun birds. Here they are, no text included, just a few pictures.
