Short Eared Owl


Chickasaw Indian Basin (Wolf River Bottoms)


Beautiful owl just sat on the log while we watched it no zoom used we could walk up to it. Soon as we left it flew off. I am not sure if I identified correctly help me out if I'm wrong

Barred owl- I live near Memphis and we have them too. They wake us up at night with all of their racket!

Yep, definitely looks like a Barred rather than a Short-eared

I would agree on the barred owl, its too small for a great gray and its not marked to be one.
