 Looking to find out more information about the Burrowing Owls of Cape Coral? 

Well you have come to the right place.

Cape Coral is home to the largest population of the Florida species of the Burrowing Owl in the State of Florida. Since this species of  pint sized owls are only found in Florida and surrounds and the Bahamas, by default, we have the largest population in the WORLD!

Birders and photographers come from all over the world to see and photograph them. Ever since the book Hoot, written by Carl Hiaasen, has become such a hit with the younger generation, children from all over are getting to see the star of the book, the Burrowing Owl, up close and personal.

And now that the Cape Coral Burrowing Owls have been on the NatGeoWild television show, more visitors are expected to come check out these charismatic little owls.
