During the winter - yes - you see reports from eastern and western OK. The rest of the year - not many reported. They like grasslands - best seen at dawn and dusk. So if you have a big open expanse of prairie, then you might find one. The "ears" aren't really ears of course - just tufts of feathers.

I then went about 1/2 mile south and started looking. There were at least 4 short-eared owls flying around. There were also at least 2 Le Conte's sparrows, 2 sedge wrens, a northern harrier and a loggerhead shrike present in the area. > > Mark Peterson > Bartlesville > >
