RAPTORS


SHORT-EARED OWLS

These owls are the largest raptors found hunting for voles in the fields around Humboldt Bay. Their broad wing span allows them to maneuver impressively while hunting and to speed up quickly while chasing or fleeing from a rival.

NORTHERN HARRIERS

The Northern Harrier (AKA: Marsh Hawk) has an owl-like face and hearing mechanisms that help it locate prey by sound. Usually flying slowly and low to the ground, they can turn on a dime to dive at rodents and birds.
