Happy Owl-idays!

Short-eared owls flock together in winter. They normally prefer to roost on the ground, where uncut grasses provide cover and protection from predators. However, they will often shelter in clumps of evergreens on windy days or when the snow gets too deep.

Short-eared owls are most active around dusk and dawn. They may emerge earlier - around mid to late afternoon - on overcast days with little or light winds. Seeing these amazing owls take to the air and start hunting right in front of you is an experience you'll never forget!

Seasons Greetings and Happy New Year from the owls (they're back!) and all of our staff, Board and volunteers at Friends of the IBA!
