LexiLine Journal #89 - 2002 : Skregg the Short-Eared Owl Photos Ireland County Roscommon Ursa Major

Welcome!

.


I have collected some links about the short-eared owl
represented by the megalith Skregg in Roscommon, Ireland.

The Short-eared Owl has the Latin name Asio flammeus
and in French it is called Hibou des marais.

The French also have some important photos online, especially the first one below, showing the owl in a flatter position, which it often takes, being very much a "ground" owl and also hunting during the day, which is unusual.

One can begin to appreciate why people take up birdwatching.

You can compare these photos of the short-eared owl to the very few photos of Skregg online at

and

Do not expect the confluence to appear immediately - it does not. But study the stone for several minutes and then you may see the ancient now very weatherworn similarity.
