And this morning, as a last bit of excitement, homebase woke me up a little before seven and said there had been a sighting of five short-eared owls in the county and so off we went! We saw a trio of turkeys taking a walk on the ice of a frozen river and we saw a posse of eight deer in a field. We went to the location reported and it wasn't too long before we spotted three owls sitting on fence posts and they let us come up very close to them. We got some nice pictures of them. Great to be able to add them to the life list. Thanks for the tip homebase!
