Short-eared owl


These are from a few years ago.


For a few years, they migrated to the strip pit area....I don't think all stayed....but there would be several that stayed during the winter.


This one above was taken in December, 2008...all the rest are taken in either 2010 or 2011'


They swoop over the land at a low altitude.


I think the last year we to see any out there was either the fall of 2011 or 2012


but I live in hope of going out there and seeing them once again.

Spectacular pictures of the owls, and seeing them in flight during daylight hours even more unusual.
We have a couple of owls living in the woods, their hoot hoot call is so calming.
Thank you for sharing.

He is a handsome fellow. You know, Rose, I've never seen an Owl up close before, and I've always wanted to. I like the white ring around his face, and those eyes are so mysterious and pretty.
