Tony Angell, ‘Holding Ground, AP 1/1’, 2017, Foster/White Gallery

It's a constant challenge to steward our natural heritage when development and consumptive interests of human kind compete for open lands and shores. The short eared owls I've known, both from having ones to rehabilitate and watching them in the field, can employ their wings as we might fists to keep a threat at bay. As a ground nesting species they are particularly vulnerable. How they will fare against the onslaught of the human tide flooding the wetlands along the Sound is another question. - Tony Angell
