Short-eared Owl (Asio flammeus) User: Chris  (See all photos - 1583)
United States (Montana) We were moving at a good clip when this guy was spotted. In order not to flush him we backed up a good ways past him, then approached to a reasonable distance gauging whether he was nervous. After a few pics we moved off without causing him fly. Near Benton Lake NWR, Montana.

Unexpected sightings add to any trip. This was a good one.

The eyes on this species are stunning. I’ve not really had a good look until now

And unlike Snowy Owls they have them open all the time when you are looking at them.
