Time Spent With a Northern Hawk Owl

They sit perched and alert listening and look for their next meal…as if their head is on a swivel they are constantly looking right, left, up and down.
The Northern Hawk Owl’s are diurnal and means they hunt during the daylight hours as well as at night…this also includes the Snowy and Great Gray Owls.

Owls such as the Eastern Screech Owl and Great Horned Owl would be nocturnal and become active at dusk when they begin to search for meals.

Take note of those talons…not something to mess with.
