Northern Hawk Owl - June 2019
Owls are awesome. Theyre by far my favourite birds, and the Northern Hawk Owl is one of the coolest. I remember many years ago when me and a friend of mine got a pair in one of the nesting boxes we put up. These guys get so angry when you get close to their nest.. Theyre like a pair of kamikaze bombers! If youre not prepared youre gonna have a heart attack and possibly a sore head :-) Last week i was on one of my many fishing trips when i stumbled across a nesting site. This guy was serious! I rushed through the area to not stress them too much, but i had to take a few shots first. He came in like a crazy jet plane and landed right above me, Roughed up his feathers in a weird way and tried to look as big and angry as possible.
Quite a character, eh?
