The Burrowing Owl is North America's only raptor that nests below ground. This bird's fate is tied to that of the prairie dog, and dog populations are in sharp decline.

This Playa Country Episode is part two of a four-part series on grassland birds. It originally aired on High Plains Public Radio July 30, 2013
