Short-eared Owl/Lake Co.
- Hello Mendobirders,
Before 10am this morning I had great looks at a Short-eared Owl in
Anderson Marsh St. Park near Lower Lake. I first observed the bird
in flight about .4 mi W of the ranch house under overcast
conditions, however it is possible that my hike flushed the bird
into the air from the tall grass in Anderson Flat and I missed
seeing it fly off of the ground. It briefly landed within binocular
range before flying again to the NW where it landed in what appeared
to be taller grass and teasel still in Anderson Flat, but about a
half mile away.
