It was winter and it was freezing cold but the Short-eared Owls were too much temptation to stay warm at home. So with numb fingers and uncontrolled shivering I watched 30 Short-eared Owls wheeling, diving and floating in the air as they hunted for their dinners. I did not realize I had taken a photo of one with prey until I reviewed my photos. The Short-eared Owls spend their winter at the reclaimed Somerville/Patoka strip-mine area.
