The short-eared owl. The Short-eared Owl is a specialist predator of small mammals, predominantly Field voles. They are skilled predators with keen vision even in low light and hearing accurate enough to pinpoint a small mammal in the undergrowth. Unlike many other owls, short-eared owls can frequently be seen hunting in broad daylight as well as in the early evening. To see more bird artwork please visit my "Animals" gallery.
