English term or phrase: burrowing owl
it's a bird!
patricia tricker
German translation:Athene cunicularia = Kaninchenkauz
Explanation:
Dear Patricia,

I undertook a quick search on the Internet and found that the scientific name is Athene cunicularia. Using this term I found the German name "Kaninchenkauz" on the Website of the Chemnitz zoo. I guess they are a reliable source. Kauz means that it is a fairly small owl.

Cheers
Claudia
