An excellent contribution to be sure, Karl ( I recall there was a Northern Hawk Owl for some time, north of Toronto, about two years ago, which you photographed, If my memory is correct. Wherever the location was, a very special image ).

Thanks Paul. I only had a few opportunities to photogrph this species and this is the most recent from Schomberg. (North of Toronto)

Great to see all that underwing detail, action is great. I like that background too.

Wonderful behaviour capture showing how it uses both beak and feet to hold its prey, Karl. Great shot!

Great moment and action, Karl. It's been way too long that I've seen this species.

Fabulous shot with prey and wing shot. One of your best, I think, of this owl.
