Description

Shawangunk Grasslands National Wildlife Refuge, part of the Wallkill River NWR, is an excellent place to see wintering raptors, especially Short-eared Owls. On this warm afternoon, the owls began hunting early. This one just caught a vole; it paused momentarily in the snow before flying off with it.
