Short-eared Owl

Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

The Short-eared Owl occurs widely throughout North America. An owl of open country, they nest on the ground inhabiting marshes, grasslands, and tundra throughout their range. Like Snowy Owls, Short-eared owl population dynamics are linked to cycles in their primary prey - small mammals (Holt and Leasure 1993). In the Alaskan Arctic, they typically nest on drier tundra sites, usually with enough vegetation to conceal incubating females. They often forage in wet tundra habitats, though not exclusively (Holt and Leasure 1993). Short-eared Owls migrate to wintering grounds in the lower 48 and northern Mexico (Holt and Leasure 1993). The current global population is estimated at 2 million (Rich et al. 2004).
