Pretty sure this is a burrow, but I don't remember seeing the elevated collar around the entrance before. We saw a few like this. Is this normal or is this only for the breeding season?

Many oaks in the area are just laden with this gall. I guess I don't hike in this part of the park every year so I don't have historical (albeit anecdotal) evidence for comparison, but it seems like there are way more galls in drought years.
