December 19, 2009 Northern Hawk-Owl near Pembroke,Ontario

While participating on the Pembroke Christmas Bird Count today, Ben and I found a Northern Hawk-Owl near the corner of Hwy. 148 and Pembroke Road on Allumette Island. The owl was sitting at the top of a deciduous tree at 11:45 a.m. We returned later in the afternoon to the site but couldn't relocate it.

The Northern Hawk-Owl is a rare winter visitor to eastern Ontario.
