Nature Photography - Done Naturally

Northern Hawk Owl Photo

This was taken in Sax-Zim Bog northwest of Duluth, Minnesota on December 13th, 2004.  This was taken along Highway 7, where people seem to be seeing the most of these guys.  I find it amazing how much some of these guys hang around the same perches.  I read all the reports on the Minnesota list-server for the few weeks prior to my little trip, and often times would find birds in the exact locations mentioned in reports 2-3 weeks ago!! Check out that Greenhouse thing on Highway 7 for example...Both days I was there, one of these guys was hanging out consistently, and was also mentioned in previous reports. Taken with Canon 300D, 400 5.6L lens.
