Notes Decided to conduct a late afternoon/early evening survey to try to capture the short-eared owls that had been regularly observed by others in the area. Did not disappoint! Just at dusk, three short-eared owls appeared in the fields in the southern portion of Hyatt Lane.
We also observed a male and female NOHA and a RSHA. Beautiful weather!
