Here’s one veteran birder’s best Long-eared Owl encounter:
“Harry, Just a bit of my experiences with LEOW. We went camping at Hart Mountain in May of 2015 and Devyn spotted a LEOW fledgling in the trees right next to our campsite but we didn’t get good looks since we arrived late and the light was poor and I think it was raining also. The next morning we found an adult and another youngster, this one still in a nest in a juniper right next to our camp table. I attached a picture of the adult and another of a fledgling. Those are the only LEOWs I’ve seen since 60 years ago in Sonoma County. Karl Schneck Ashland, Oregon”
