Long-eared owl spotted on farm

We spotted an owl in our windbreak the other day.

What an amazing sight! Picture taken by John Choate (www.mrchoate.com)

We have seen this bird of prey for several days, along with an increasing amount of bald eagles. There are a couple of thoughts to this. One, our certified organic farm that is geared to increase biodiversity is achieving that goal and two, the presence of this owl only indicates that there are layers in the food chain that will support such a animal. All this is very good, in our opinion. The more species of wildlife we can attract to our farm, the more sustainable and balanced we believe our farm is.
