short eared owlMK Nature Design is pleased to release her final Short Eared Owl.  It is a pastel painting on U-Art paper.

The short eared owl is an open-country hunter.  It’s a widely distributed owl and often seen in daylight.  No ear tufts can be seen.  The black rimmed yellow eyes in a pale face makes it distinct.  This bird hunts over grasslands especially at dusk or at dawn.  She hunts small mammals and birds. Summer habitat reaches to Alaska and the Yukon but not the Arctic archipelago.  Year round range lies mainly in the northern USA and some places in South America.  The winter range runs all the way down to the Mexican border.  This time MK Nature Design found her information on the Cornell University site for Ornithology.

Enjoy.  Please give me feedback by liking and/or commenting below, or liking and sharing on Facebook or retweeting on Twitter!  I really value your feedback since it shows me what you like and gives me ideas for what to do in the future.  Take care, :).
