My birding column today for The Record and the USA Today newspapers in New Jersey is about a nearby National Wildlife Refuge that is bearing the brunt of folks wanting to get close to nature during these COVID times.

One of the draws of the refuge is its Short-eared Owls. I have never seen so many so close.

I wondered if the real Bond wrote much about Short-eared Owls.

Turns out they are mentioned in both his Birds of the West Indies
