With temperatures getting colder next week and winter knocking on our door, it’s about time for Bald Eagles and Short-eared Owls to again take residence in Missouri for the winter. In fact, I saw an adult eagle soaring over a field near my home just a week or so ago. And yesterday, a good friend sent me a photo of a short-eared owl that she found a couple of days ago. So I’ll likely be out in the fields after this next cold front moves in, to see what I can find. In the meantime, I’m featuring a few of my favorite many images of these two birds that I’ve captured over the past couple of years:
And, with a little luck, maybe we’ll have another irruption of Snowy Owls back into the area!
