Short-eared Owl by Steve Gifford

After just getting back to town after a nice Christmas holiday with family, I decided to make a quick run out to Somerville to watch the owls in the snow. As is typical when the ground is snow covered, the owls were out hunting earlier than usual (3pm CST) and already quite active when I arrived. As an added bonus, many of the owls were sitting or perched close to the road waiting for mice and voles to scamper across.

 

With tonight's additional snow, tomorrow should be another great show!
