Short-eared Owl

The Short-eared owl has been my nemesis bird for the past two years. I’ve waited hours in their known haunts, and walked winter marshes at first light, just hoping for a good look at a roosting bird. And then, one afternoon, in a major stroke of luck, I got this bird, on the very same day I found the Northern Saw-whet.
