Long-Eared Owl

Today I found the Long-Eared Owl. Long-eared owls are fairly common in Minnesota. Long-eared owls are prey for raptors such as Bald Eagles, Red-tailed Hawks, Barred owls and Great Horned Owls.

What is interesting about owls is that they rotate their heads 270 degrees.

If you’re interested in binoculars, these are the ones I use. I really like them.
