Salt Lake City, UT – The short-eared owl has a reputation for being relatively quiet as owls go. But that reputation is being challenged as more audio recordings are made. As part of the Western Soundscapes radio series, Jeff Rice has this audio postcard.

The Western Soundscapes radio series is funded in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, and is produced in cooperation with the Western Soundscape Archive at the University of Utah's J. Willard Marriott Library.
