Today as we returned from a very nice DFO field trip to Yuma County, we spotted two *Short-eared Owls* foraging along Hwy 36 as we drove between Byers and East Bijou Creek, along the Arapahoe / Adams line (which there runs along the highway). East Bijou is the first notable drainage east of Byers. It was 6:20 pm, mostly cloudy. We watched one foraging for several minutes close to the highway, and then another flew from the roadside about 0.5 mile from the first. Also in Arapahoe, 5 *Burrowing Owls* were at the prairie dog town along CR 269 at about 1.3 miles south of Hwy 36.
