A Short-eared Owl stretches each wing alternately in preparation for an evening hunt. These owls provide the greatest example of low wing-loading, meaning that they have the lowest weight per area of wing surface, favoring them with the most buoyant flight, a useful feature in an open, treeless landscape.
