Northern Shrike, Long-eared Owl, Short-eared Owls

I had a Northern Shrike, perhaps the last of the season in the Parker tonight. Also a Long-eared Owl hunting the reserve last weekend, a great bird to catch on the wing. I had only seen them perched previously. Additionally of note, a number of Short-eared Owls continue in the Reserve, at least 5 owls.  I did not muster any good pic's of the Long-eared or the short-eared but documented non the less, casey got the long-eared.
