Short-eared owls are not only great to watch as they quarter the fields in search of voles but a great subject to photograph. I recent visited a site where four birds put on a great display in both hunting and terratorial behaviour. Here are some of the photographs of these beautiful birds in action.

How beautiful these pictures are!! I rarely see owls where I live. What a treat! This is a terrific blog site. I'm going to have fun going through your previous posts.

Thanks for the comments sandpiper and ecobirder. Its always a pleasure to have SEOs quartering around the fields in front of you. Sometimes I have to remind myself to take the photos and not just sit and watch them!!!
