Short-eared Owl

Standard

Driving to my field site this morning, I encountered a species that has eluded me for years: Asio flammeus, the Short-eared Owl. I’ve only ever heard a couple barks and watched something fly like a floppy Northern Harrier in the distance at dusk. So seeing her close up this morning made me one happy dude.

She's not a morning person

I've never thought illustrations have done them justice.
