I caught a couple of brief glimpses of at least one Short-eared Owl this evening west of Mylan Park. This is only the 2nd or 3rd time I have seen the species here since the CBC so they are tough to spot, but good to know they have (presumably) hung around. Scope is pretty helpful scanning from the church parking lot. A nice flock of Turkey vultures kettling down to roost somewhere as well. And there has been an Eastern Screech-Owl calling pretty regularly in the pre-dawn hours near my house close to the football stadium. That is something I have very rarely heard in my neighborhood. Warmer temps have me looking forward to spring and some migrants. Best wishes to you all.
