Short-eared Owls are about the size of a crow. They are light tan with wide brown streaks on their upper-parts and thinner well-defined vertical streaks on their breast and belly. There are black spots on the undersides of their wings near the wrists. Small ear tuffs and black bands frame their yellow eyes.
