Short eared owl

Wow, what a surprise to see this short eared owl fly across the road to an alder tree this a.m. while on a walk. It turned it's head 180 degrees to keep an on eye on me until I was out of site then it flew away but not before the small birds tried to harass it with loud chirping and close charging fly bys.

  1. Nice sketch, Lois! I love owls and always keep my eyes open for a new species. So far I've only seen barred and Horned. I'm envious!
