Unlike the other indigenous British Isles owls, the short-eared owl is primarily a bird of the open country, and spends long periods away from trees and bushes, and nests, nearly always, on the ground. It has been known by such names as Brown Yogle, Cat Owl, Day Owl, Fern Owl, Grey (Gray) Hullet, Grey (Gray) Yogle, Hawk Owl, March Owl, Marsh Owl, Moor Owl, Mouse Hawk, Pilot Owl, Red Owl, Sea Owl, Short-horned Howlet, Short-horned Owl and Woodcock Owl.
