Last evening seemed like a good opportunity to find a Short-eared Owl.  
So I headed to Gage Road in Addison.  Shortly thereafter Brendan Collins 
and Henry Trombley arrived, having had the same thought.  As twilight 
deepened, two Short-eared Owls darting and twisting close to each other 
appeared in a distant field north of Gage Road.  We lost track of one, 
but watched the other sweep back and forth a time or two, then in an 
instant settled out of sight.  We did not see it again.

My list of birds for the evening are below.


{p.s.  I've figured that an evening would be ideal for seeing a 
Short-eared Owl many times .... only to discover no owls.}
