Four burrowing owls hatched at the Lake Superior Zoo about three weeks ago as part of the Species Survival Plan. The chicks are the second brood to come from the zoo's two breeding owls. Burrowing owls are considered an endangered species in Minnesota due to loss of prairie habitat. All four chicks, which are full grown at 4-5 inches tall, will be transferred to the Minnesota Zoo for educational purposes like their Zoo Mobile outreach program.
