Short-eared Owl in Mukawa

Fever of Short-eared Owl has come in Mukawa.
Many birders aimed the owl which stayed here at least 6 individuals.

This individual was tamed to human.
 It tried to hunt its prey but I couldn't observe its success.

I was first time to see its perching on standing grass.

In the evening I heard two individuals were hunted by falcon....


  1. These are such great shots! The opening and ending ones are just wow!

  2. Wow that's a fantastic collection of pictures of a fantastic bird... Well done Mate... It is quite rare over here but we can occasionally see some individual. I never managed any picture!

  3. Great Owl shots, I have to go to Mukawa this winter!

  4. Thank you comments to all.

    In general, Short-eared Owl will disappear until February in Mukawa. And Rough-legged Buzzard is not observed in this season.
