After spending the afternoon with 2 Snowy Owls at Button Bay, I decided to
head over to Country Club Rd. to try for the Short-eared Owls.  I parked at
the first bend in the rd. coming from route 17.  At 4:30, I could hear a
Great Horned Owl calling from the woods on the South side of the road.
 Just a few minutes later the Short-eared Owls came out.  They were flying
along the fence line, occasionally landing on a post.  At one point I was
able to see 7 flying over the field all at once.  What a great way to end
the day!

“We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we
see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with
love and respect." ~Aldo Leopold
