Young Burrowing Owls are particularly endearing for their extra-long legs that stick out from beneath their bodies like stilts. It's an adaptation for living on the grasslands; with few trees to perch on, Burrowing Owls have evolved to sprint along the ground to capture prey. And without trees for nesting, Burrowing Owls have adapted by living underground in abandoned badger, gopher or prairie dog homes. The chicks stay in the den for the first two weeks, but will soon emerge to explore their world and develop their hunting skills.

Third coin in a highly popular series featuring baby animals. Order yours today before they're all gone!

Special features:
•   Expertly crafted in 99.99% pure silver and beautifully enhanced with colour to showcase the baby Burrowing Owl's plumage and bright yellow eyes.
•   A unique gift for proud residents of Alberta and Saskatchewan, the last two bastions for one of the most endangered birds in Western Canada. (Manitobans and British Columbians living in the interior may also enjoy a rare sighting.)
•   Beautifully crafted in 99.99% pure silver, your coin is also GST/HST exempt.
•   Mintage is limited to 7,500 worldwide.

Coin design:
Your coin was designed by Canadian artist Arnold Nogy and features a heartwarming design of an adult Burrowing Owl standing next to its owlet while holding a tasty offering of a grasshopper in its beak. Beautiful selective colouring showcases the Burrowing Owl's brown and white speckled plumage and highlights the key difference between an adult and its young; chicks have a solid, buff-coloured chest whereas an adult's chest is barred. The tall grass highlights the Burrowing Owl's prairie habitat and one can perhaps detect the shadowy entrance to a burrow behind the adorable pair.

Packaging:
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.

First, let me state that I am a traditionalist and therefore not a big fan of coloured coins. I prefer the effort be placed on the engraving. That being said, I do very much like this issue. The colour is subtle, the subject matter is great and the engraving is lovely. This one is a keeper.
