Received a report, via a friend of a friend (so can’t account for birding expertise) of a Short-eared Owl being seen at the Fulton, MO airport.     Google lists the airport at 4420 County Road 304, roughly southwest of the intersection of Highway F and Highway 54.  

 

Perhaps this is where our Boone County birds have re-located  --- or maybe they have been there all along, just no one saw or reported them.
