Short-Eared Owl

Acton--20140101-067

The short-eared owl is a hunter of the open grasslands, and one of the most widely distributed owls in the world.   They are distinguished by large, round heads and beautiful mottled streaks on their chests.   I photographed this one on New Year’s Day near Acton, Montana.
