Here is some general information on the short-eared owl.
The Short-eared Owl (Asio flammeus)
is a species of typical owl (family Strigidae). Owls belonging to genus Asio are known as
the eared owls, as they have tufts of feathers resembling mammalian ears. These
"ear" tufts may or may not be visible. Asio flammeus will display its tufts when
in a defensive pose. However, its very short tufts are usually not visible. The
Short-eared Owl is found in open country and grasslands.
