I've been doing too many theropods as of late.

Oryctodromeus cubicularis was an ornithopod that's known to have dug burrows. Lately, some other ornithopod burrows have turned up in Australia. Also, Oryctodromeus cubicularis' closest relatives (known collectively and unofficialy as zephyrosaurs), Orodromeus makelai and Zephyrosaurus schaffi, show adaptations to burrowing as well, including moderately powerful forelimbs and a broad snout. In fact, some Orodromeus makelai specimens, upon close inspection, seem to have been preserved in burrows, too.
