This is a rare visitor in New England. They are a boreal species that breed in the far north and once every few years one makes it down our way in the winter.
Beautiful Tom! one of my all time favorite animals. :)
Thanks Carol and Karen. I just changed the order and put the diving shot first.
Gorgeous! I agree with Christy, the 4th shot is spectacular - you should consider making that the main image. You can change the order by dragging & dropping the images in Edit.
What a beautiful owl. Great series.
Christy, thanks for letting me know about the Raptor mission. I'll add all the ones I have to it.
Nice series Tom and beautiful bird; one can tell why its called hawk owl in the last picture. Wouldn´t like to be a small vertebrate walking around. Greetings =)
Muchas gracias Augusto.
La última foto espectacular. Felicitaciones.
Tom, you have some incredible raptor shots!! We don't get Hawk Owls this far south (Colorado)...your 4th shot is fantastic!! I'd love you to add this spotting (and all your others) to the mission Raptors of North America: http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/8627...
Thanks Maria, Lindsy and gator.
Very nice :)
Wow- beautiful shots!
wonderful series - the last shot is awesome!
Thanks, these are special owls.
A wonderful series of this beautiful owl! Love the last pic!
I hope so! Such an awesome species.
Agreed! He's practically a bullet in the last picture.
It does have a sinister look to it:-) Fyn Kynd I'm sure you'll see a hawk-owl one of these years. I'm hoping to get pictures of a Great Gray. The only one I saw was over 20 years ago in Rowley, Ma before I had a camera.
Very nice Tom! Congrats! One of my most wanted birds for Maine.
This is potentially the creepiest looking owl I have ever seen! Of course I love it still, especially him diving in the last photo!
