Northern Hawk Owl on Powerlines
Northern Hawk owl, bird species in the owl family. Long-tailed and cross-striped underside brings associations to our hawks and is the backdrop to the name of this owl. It belongs to our medium-sized owls. The length is 35–40 cm and weight approx. 300 grams. Unlike most of our owls, hawk owls are day-active. It is easily visible in the top of a tree (or powerline as in this case) when it scouts for small rodents.
