Short-eared Owls

On Saturday, December 15, Martin Kehoe checked the Winters’ wetland conservation area in Shirland at dusk. He spotted 3 Short-eared Owls flying over the marsh there, so we have them recorded for the Rockford Christmas Bird Count. Martin went back there yesterday, December 17, and, moving further back along the levee, found a total of 7-3 nearer to the road and 4 in the back.

Tonight Barbara and I met Martin there and saw two.
