Short-eared Owls are nomadic so the places where I saw and photographed these male Short-eared Owls last year may or may not have owls this breeding season.
There are some that say the state can better care for those lands. I'd call them fools but we humans are all distant cousins so I'll tame that down a bit and call them misled instead. Intentionally and deliberately misled.
2016 was a good year for me photographically and although I don't know what 2017 will bring I hope it is filled with birds, great scenery and wildlife. Thanks for tagging along with me in 2017 and sharing my journeys.
