Valley of the Shadow of Death

The majority of California's burrowing owls live near Salton Sea, a polluted and fast-shrinking lake. The water is so salty that few fish survive, and the stench of sulphur fills the air. Dozens of owls make their burrows next to drainage canals and agricultural fields, in tandem with migrant workers.
