Thanks for the report on MComas and the return of the owls.  I haven't found the owls there the past 2 winters, so it's great to know they're back!!!

> 12 Trumpeter Swans
> 6 Sandhill Cranes (I originally saw these a couple of weeks ago)
> 2 Great Horned Owls sitting together in a tree not far from the old eagle nest
> Lots o' Ducks, pelicans, etc...
> Smithville Lake, Clay County:
> 2 Western Grebes and 1 Clark's Grebe as reported earlier by Andy
> McComas Road off J Hwy near Smithville Lake:
> 5:10 p.m. - Eleven Short-eared Owls. Very, very nice to see such a large number, the most I have seen there in several years. In fact, I'm not sure I, or anyone, saw any there last year.
