Description

This owl came from a few large trees growing next to a pond in a depression in the sage steppe habitat of the area. I suddenly saw it flying straight toward me at about 15 ft in the air (somewhat low). It veered up as it neared. There was also a hawk soaring past at the time. The owl rose up and swooped on the hawk once. Strangely though, the owl flew off, and did not return to the trees (I thought it may have been nesting there, given its behavior).

I believe from the photos (as best I could take in the few seconds I had!), that this was a short-eared owl.

Okay, they're just babies, but their parents were clearly great horned owls!
