Hoot - The Owls of Marco Island

This past weekend the movie "hoot" opened up which was produced by Jimmy Buffett which features burrowing owls. The movie also includes a soundtrack featuring new parrothead music from Jimmy Himself.

Since I rarely go the movies, (I've been to 4 movies in 8 years, and 3 of them were Star Wars related), I decided to have a date with some real burrowing owls which can be found on Marco Island, on Florida's Southwest Coast.

While sustaining a direct hit from Wilma from last year, the burrowing owl nests are thriving on the Island.

Hopefully they won't be pushed out by developers as envisioned by the plot of the "hoot" movie so we can continue to enjoy and photograph these adorable creatures.
