|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|I was very busy last year and I didnít have to much time to post all my pictures. I will start this year to post and I hope I will catch up.|
The Short-eared Owl (Asio flammeus) lives in open areas such as grasslands, marshes and tundra where it hunts for small mammals, especially voles. Short-eared Owls nest on the ground and the female sits tight on the eggs while the male brings food to her over the four week incubation period. Short-eared Owls have relatively long wings and are often seen hunting over fields with a bouncy, butterfly-like flight. In most winters, Short-ears will congregate in southern Ontario at places such as Wolfe and Amherst Islands near Kingston.
