Saturday afternoon I decided to take an owl excursion of sorts. I went out in search of burrowing and short eared owls. Last year was a banner year it seemed so I was hoping for the same this year. So far on this first owl excursion I have only seen 2 short eared owls and 5 burrowing owls but I am hoping this is the start of another great year for owls. This burrowing owl was the only one which gave me an opportunity to get a photograph yesterday. It sat just long enough for me to snap a quick picture before it flew off further away from the road and well out of photography range. I am excited for another summer photographing and observing these beautiful birds.
