A burrowing owl, pictured in Tswsassen, B.C., in 2014. Birds of grassland landscapes, such as burrowing owls, chestnut-collared longspurs and Baird’s sparrows, are declining faster than any other group of birds across North America, and grassland birds have declined nearly 57 per cent since 1970, write Patrick Nadeau, Ian Cook, and Ryan Beierbach.
