It was very hard to get close enough for a good shot of this guy so these are heavily cropped. I love watching them work a marsh looking for mice/voles.

The flight shots were taken in the morning and the perched one later in the afternoon just before I left to go home. There were 2 owls and 2 harriers working this marsh. I'm still trying to get the harrier in flight.

Thanks Bill. The nice thing about short-eareds is that they are active during the day time. Most other species are fairly well hidden during the day so not easily spotted (sorry, not intended as a pun!).

Nice, now I can see why they call it "short-eared".
