He is the only business left in the tiny town, yet at 93 years of age, he works with the hope of the town staying alive.

    Parker Heinlein, Outdoors Columnist|Sep 28, 2022

    Blame the burrowing owls. Fascinating little critters that they are, the tiny birds are apparently the reason Bowdoin National Wildlife Refuge adopted a scorched-earth policy regarding habitat.

It appears to have worked. Two adult owls raised five babies on the 15,000-acre plus refuge this summer. The...
