Need owl identification

Recommended Posts

Short-eared has a much paler wing with less barring on the primaries. There are lots of other differences, but that's usually one of the easier characters to use on these two in flight.

I'm not sure if this is a long eared owl. I don't see any tufts on the head. Short eared owls are very similar to long eared beside the tufts, so I think its a short eared owl
