Short-eared Owls Part II

March 13, 2015 0 By Audrey

I read recently that Nature Nut Notes saw these owls the same week! We must have just missed each other. There was one other gentleman present on Monday with a GIANT camera lens, I would love to see those pictures!

I had such a fun adventure on Monday, I wanted to share the experience with my boyfriend, Tomas. After work Thursday, we made the journey across town to see the Short-eared Owls.

I am beginning the painful process of weaning myself off the automatic setting on my camera. Ouch. Over-exposed, but I still kind of like it.

Here are some other better-ish pictures.

Pretty sweet.

We even saw the famed Horned Lark! He blends in so well with the grass.

My favorite part of this trip was meeting two birders who arrived shortly after us. Cassandra and James recently moved to Oregon and were there to experience one of the great things about Oregon – owls. Too cool! I am thrilled there are others out there who feel similarly about birding.
