College football is big in the US, as everyone's aware. One of Florida's staple teams hails from FAU, that's Florida Atlantic University for the uninitiated. Their team name and emblem is an owl, with their mascot, Owlsley seeming perhaps a little out of place as small creature on the football field... in general, it didn't really strike me as odd in the first place, but once I spent a bit of time strolling their campus I quickly figured it out! They have a longstanding population of burrowing owls. The first time I noticed one was crossing a path near the school's Boca Raton campus on my way to explore the milkshake menu at Shake Shack. They're best observed from a small distance and at the twilight hours as dusk welcomes the dark of the evening.
