Recently I took an Ornithology class. I have always had an interest in birds, so when I was able to take a college level class, I jumped at the opportunity. Many of our classes were held at the Forsythe National Wildlife refuge. It has become one of my favorite birding spots. During my trip there today, I spotted this beautiful Short Eared Owl. I am really wishing I had rented the 150 - 500mm.
