The Burrowing Owls Of Antioch

Bay Area Wild Life Advocates are protesting the eviction of a colony of Owls in Antioch to make way for a housing development ...The developer has hired biologists to evict the Burrowing Owls by installing one way doors on their burrows ...Allowing the Owls to leave their homes but not to get back in...A group called friends of East Bay Owls says more should be done to relocate these Owls as well as other wild life in the area pushed out by development...They want to see land set aside that the animals can go to adding that you cant just keep developing without setting someting aside for the wildlife of our area!!! Smokey totally agrees...Just last saturday I was  at  this location and I saw a Coyote in the middle of the day looking very confused with almost a "what the heck is happening around here " look on his face ...He was a pretty adolescent looking youngster too...Anyway of course I didnt have my camera at the time or else I would show you but these at Friends of East Bay Owls do make a valid point and something more needs to be done here...
