FYI- Sighted by serendipity on a small, low lying weedy spot along Kingston St. SSW of Kimball of an ag-field. While working it for sparrows (lots of Savannahs),  about stepped on a Short-eared Owl roosting in the patch.  It flushed a couple hundred yards away into a disced-up field able to be relocated and at rest in a "gully" curve of the terrain.  Likely a migrant not at a staging location, but, indicative of winter birds on the move. mjb
