Short-eared Owl, the Revisit
Laura and I found Short-eared Owls once again on our second trip to the Annapolis Valley. The Short-eared Owl blends well into its open country environment so it can be tricky to find. More than once we flushed it simply because we did not see it. I do not know if the Northern Harrier preys on this owl or whether its a bit too large to wrestle. Northern Harriers are always cruising around open ground also looking for small mammals and birds.
