It kept landing on a headgate for water diversion and watched me very closely.
Then right by the road in the grass was a brown spot with big yellow eyes - a Short-eared owlet.
Not too far off I saw another one.
Then another one that was exposed to the diving harriers.
After an attack from the harriers, it flew about 20 yards into some thick bull rushes.
Across the road was another adult - I believe it was the male of the pair.
He eventually took off and chased the harriers away from the area.
On the way home I stopped to check out a Great-horned owl nest and found that the eggs had hatched and now a pair of adults have three hungry chicks to feed.
Just a few rewards of spending time in the wilds of Idaho and enjoying the wildness of it all.
