David and tweeters,

Short-eared Owls appear to nest in small numbers in the fields and pastures
north of Ellensburg. I've seen them regularly around dusk in May and June
north of the E'burg airport and along Lower Green Canyon Rd.

Subject: [Tweeters] SEOW nesting?

As a matter of general interest does anyone have a good handle on where
SEOW's nest in the Northwest? Do any nest and stay in the Skagit over the
summer? The books I have say they tend to gather in small flocks during
courting and mating but specific locations seem to be scare. Now that I have
a number of reasonable images, I would like to increase my knowledge of life
cycle, etc., for teaching purposes and find that too many of the bird books
copy each other with old knowldege. Any help with personal knowledge would
be appreciated.
