Short Eared Owls
I have recently discovered an area close to where I live where there appears to be approximately 6 short eared owls living.
From local birding contacts they appeared to have arrived some time in early November.
Yesterday afternoon I decided to head out and see if I could get any shots. Unfortunately the lighting was not great and although I saw a number of the owls they were quite a long distance away.
I think these two images are the best of the bunch.
