About this scrapbook page:
It is estimated that 500 to 800 pairs nest in Canada, with approximately half nesting in Saskatchewan. In Saskatchewan the population has declined 94% since the 1980s. In 2004, there were 47 pairs found nesting in Grasslands National Park in Saskatchewan. In 2008 there were only 20 nesting pairs. They had completely disappeared from Manitoba and British Columbia. Now some have been sighted in 2006 and 2007 in Manitoba. The burrowing owl has been reintroduced in British Columbia.
