Northern Hawk Owl

Last weekend, myself and some friends from the local nature society, visited Montreal Lake in northern SK. to look for Owls. We got lucky and managed to find several Hawk Owls during the time we spent up there.

Here is one individual we found :

Hi Nick,
Wonderful! I love the two last shot and especially the last portrait... It is terrific and its gaze fantastic. We did it well man! I did not get the same chance over here, the winter came for a week and now it is raining like hell.. Strange winter we are getting...

Nick, these pictures are just outstanding - they took my breath away. You must be pleased!
By the way - my friend Tina from Tina's Birdyarns sent me one of your calendars for Christmas and I am enjoying your photography - gorgeous!
You sure do excellent work.

Wonderful photos - this owl appears from time to time in the NE - about one report a year if memory is right - what a treat to have several handy for viewing

Thanks everyone. Jayne, I'm glad you like the calendar :-)
I'll be doing another one for 2011.

Interesting shots - the rodent looks like Mus musculus.

Did you bait the owl using store-bought feeder mice?

Getting a bit of green eye monster here, spot on mate, amazing shots.
