Then it was off to the Killsnake State Wildlife Area(also within Manitowoc County) for Short-eared Owls. I had a fantastic observation as 10 owls were on the hunt. As one of them caught lunch, they all descended into the grasses and disappeared. Pretty amazing show!
Everyday was overcast. And some days were downright blustery. At one point, water edged both sides of the road and had me a little nervous.

As I returned from my venture, I stopped for a quick lunch and watched this Ring-billed Gull hang out in the parking lot.
