[cayugabirds-l] Lansing Short-eared

2013-12-10 Thread Ken Smith
Greetings,

At 4:45 there was a Short-eared Owl perched on the utility pole at the north 
end of Scofield Rd where it ends at Buck Rd. It took off and flew south across 
the field on the east side of Scofield Rd.

RE: [cayugabirds-l] Lansing Short-eared Owls

2010-12-18 Thread Susan Fast
I spent some time this evening on Hart Rd., town of Dryden, hoping for an
owl or two.  Shortly after 1700, I saw an EARED OWL flying towards Hart Rd.
from the east (direction of high school). It was relatively high up and
showed the somewhat irregular, floppy flight that I've seen in short-ears.
The light was dim however, and it then veered off to the south and crossed
the valley.  I did not notice conspicuous light patches on the wing
undersides, and the underneath was quite dark.  I am not at all familiar
with long-eared owls, but thought this owl might have come from a conifer
roost in the direction from which it appeared.  Further study may be needed.

I took the long way home this evening and looked for Short-eared Owls in a
couple of spots more or less on the way home.  I had brief views of one owl
far out in the fields south of Burdick Hill Road (along with dozens and
dozens of deer).  I had better looks at another owl at the airport.  I was
looking south from Snyder Rd and the owl was hunting over the west and south
side of the scrubby vegetation in the middle of the open area north of the
terminal.

 

It's been years since I have seen Short-eared Owls at the airport, but it's
still wonderful habitat and they've probably been there.
