Long-eared Owl2/17/20221  Connor Langan (eBird) Flushed from a cedar while looking for saw-whets. Surprisingly, I walked right under the tree without noticing or flushing the bird, but the bird decided to vacate the initial roost tree a minute later as I was checking nearby trees. The bird flew with a floppy flight style, and I noticed its pale wings and isolated, dark lines on/near the primary coverts. I ended up flushing the bird again, which confirmed the ID. I am fairly confident that this individual is a migrant, as I found no signs of whitewash nor pellets under the initial roost tree. Moreover, I have checked the cedar grove several times this winter and have not observed this bird before.
