Ian, are you seeing the short eared owls
Around dusk? We want to take our young son and hope to time it right! Is there a marker for the best place to look on Gage?
Any information is much appreciated. Our son is quite the birder and would enjoy both species!

I haven't been there myself this fall, but I've been birding/dog-walking in several large cut-hay and stubble corn fields in western Addison County. The vole signs in places are the highest density I've seen (to my recollection) in quite a long time. There are extensive runway systems, holes everywhere, and foxes and fox diggings are common.
