For Burrowing owls, like in the movie/book Hoot, is their scientific name Athene cuniclarious of Speotyto cuniclarious, I have two books that say these names, and it is driving me NUTS! Wacko

Please read it, you big 'ol fool,
Read the books Guardians of Ga'Hoole!

the genus is now Athene, but it used to be Speotyto
scientists often update the scientific names after doing genetic research. you can see all the Athene owls at http://www.owlpages.com/owls.php?genus=Athene
