Northern Hawk-Owl at Schomberg

This Northern Hawk Owl was actively hunting late in the day on 7 December 2019. It was banded so we know it is a first year male in excellent condition. It seems to be getting sufficient food, as there are many photos of it catching small rodents. Schomberg, Ontario.
