Short-Eared Owl and Harrier Fight over Vole

In addition to the snowy owls, there are also short-eared owls at Boundary Bay, as well as plenty of harrier hawks. The two don't like each other very much and are constantly trying to steal each other’s lunch — in this case, a vole. The harrier attacked the owl in mid air and the battle was on.
