If you haven’t seen a burrowing owl, get yourself down to Cesar Chavez Park in Berkeley. They are really cool. There are three owls in the park this winter, and another three in the “Berkeley Meadow” nearby, which is part of Eastshore State Park. Golden Gate Audubon Society has a docents program at the park, so if you’re lucky there will be someone there to point out the owls, show them to you through binoculars or a spotting scope, and tell you about them. Just follow the path around the perimeter of the park until you get to the orange fence that protects the owls from roaming dogs.
