Good day:

One female SHORT-EARED OWL was easily seen with my binoculars, then tracked for a few minutes with
my 25x - 50x zoom scope today at 11:37 am (11/12/17).

I was pleased that many in my Merritt College raptor class noted it was a “life bird.”

Of course, several other birders have recently seen this species on the same road. A nice link
to view recent sightings (including several in 2017):

Many other common raptor species seen and enjoyed on a gorgeous day (BUT no Ferruginous or Rough-legged Hawk…..)
