Description: A nesting pair of long-eared owls was found 10 miles north of Corvallis, Benton County, Oregon, on 24 April, 1969. The pair was observed and photographed until 30 May, when the young left the nest. This is the third record of nesting Asio otus west of the Oregon Cascades. Gabrielson and Jewett (1940) reported that Pope collected eggs from a nest "presumably near Sheridan" in 1894. Maser and Gordon (1965) found a nesting pair 21/2 miles north of Bellfountain, Benton County, on 13 May, 1964.
