I think you have your finger on it. Short-eared Owls are nomadic and tend
to show up where the food is rather than being tied to specific places.
This benefits species that rely upon prey with fluctuating populations such
as voles. The floods earlier this year likely resulted in the loss of lots
of voles in some places and perhaps an increase in others. Short-eared
Owls are willing and able to move great distances to secure food, so it is
hard to say to where they may have moved.
