This morning (2/19/2010) at 4:00 a.m. the usual pre-dawn chorus of  
Barred and Great Horned Owls at Moss Island WMA was joined by the  
deep throaty monotone of a single Long-eared Owl.  This was in the  
fields and tree lines in the western part of the WMA, the same  
general area that has turned up a Rough-legged Hawk and a Common  
Ground-Dove in recent years.  The previous afternoon (2/18/10) I  
flushed a Short-eared Owl from the fields along Great River Road in  
the southern corner of the WMA, so it was a full set of the "Eared  
Owls" in less than 24 hours.  The Moss Island bird list now includes  
every regularly occurring Tennessee owl except for Northern Saw-whet.
