More Short Eared Owls

Still hoping to see short eared owls up close. I caught these right before sunset. Occasionally you may have to opportunity to see them earlier in the day, but many times they come up an hour or two before sunset.

In hunting mode. They seem to get a lot of voles here.

Short eared owls sleep on the ground, making them susceptible to predators. I heard possibly a coyote got one at this location a few years ago.

Once again I saw an owl and a harrier fighting over food, although I did not include it here.

Just two short eared owls having fun.
Sitting on a rock and staring at me.

Again, these owls are very far away and these images are heavily cropped. Regardless I got in a long walk, and it is fun to see them from afar as well.
