about

Recorded at Hart Mountain National Antelope Refuge, Lake County, Oregon, April 20, 2009, 05:31 hrs.

An early morning sageland soundscape featuring short-eared owls (Asio flammeus) with barks, hoots, wing-claps, flybys and other interesting behavior.

This excerpt begins with the Wilson's snipe winnowing in the distance and a surrounding chorus of sage thrashers, vesper sparrows, and savannah sparrows. Then some rapid wing beats can be heard which sound like two greater sage grouse landing nearby - right in the middle of the ensuing owl activity. Toward the end there are some great flyby sounds from a circling bird my guess is this is a an owl, though it could be a northern harrier as a pair were noticed nearby.

This track is also featured on Kevin Colver's Soundscapes for Birders website and podcast at:

Thank you, Kevin Colver and Martyn Stewart, for help with species identification.
