They like large expanses of tallgrass prairie. There are usually northern harriers present during the daylight hours.

I've never seen one of these. Do they occur in western Ok? Any tips on finding one, habitat, etc? Thanks

Hello All,

Today, at about 5 pm, I went east of Bartlesville on Tuxedo to the dirt road a mile east of Bison Road. 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.
