Again, a beautiful sunny day, so I decided to take another stroll across Papercourt Meadows, this time restricting it to the late afternoon. When I arrived there just before 3pm, two Short-Eared Owls were already searching and swooping at the far end of the field, and it wasn't long before they were joined by a Barn Owl.
|A Barn Owl searches the meadows.|
|He sees something on the ground, and stoops!|
|False alarm! Continue the search.|
|A Short-Eared Owl and a Barn Owl come close to an accidental collision ...|
|... and there is a bit of a mid-air scrap before they resume their search patterns.|
|The Short-Eared Owls seem to keep low when searching.|
|The Kestrel swerves into a sudden dive, but the Crow stays right on his tail!|
