Short-eared Owl (Asio flammeus)

Galapagos, June 12, 2019

First seen in Shawangunk Grasslands on February 1, 2014. This is the place near home that we can regularly find these birds in early winter.

Most sightings near home have been of birds in flight at a distance near dusk resulting in mediocre photos. We got much better looks (and pics) of them on our Galapagos Island trip in June, 2019.
