Northern Hawk Owl

Northern Hawk Owl

This is the cleanest of several frames of this Northern Hawk Owl on a spruce perch. The snow was begining to fall more heavily reducing the visibility somewhat. As you can see from the top of the tree, it is a well used perch for this swift and silent hunter.

Incredible shot, Bill. Do you see these owls often where you live? I have only ever seen one and it was in Vermont if I remember correctly.
