Short-eared Owl (Asio flammeus) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1407)
Canada (Ontario) Amherst Island (Kingston area) - I was pleasantly surprised to find nearly a dozen Short-eareds cruising a couple of favourite areas. There was a good number during the winter but a few could remain to breed. I had a couple of them close by while I was watching the Say's Phoebe.

This was a tough one. At times the birds (there were several) were too close overhead and getting one fully in the frame and in focus was a challenge. At least this one worked.

Great close up,Brian!
Tough to get indeed. I usually saw them early evening.

Sometimes they hunt a bit earlier, about 1 1/2 to 2 hours before sunset. That means you can get them in decent light. If they are really hungry they will hunt throughout the day (mainly in winter), taking breaks every few hours.
