Northern Hawk-Owl (14) (Surnia ulula) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1278) (Comments - 3473)
Canada (Ontario) Ottawa - This Pileated is not pleased that the owl is still around. It let it know several times. Maybe it had plans to take down the treetop :)

Tundra Swan (7) (Cygnus columbianus) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1278) (Comments - 3473)
Canada (Ontario) Ridgetown - A wintering site. Mild weather and no snow (at that point) meant that about 6-700 birds were still present.

Gyrfalcon (10) (Falco rusticolus) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1278) (Comments - 3473)
Canada (Ontario) Wolfe Island- Kingston - This bird had been reported off and on by one person for a few weeks but spotting it is luck. I went there hoping but not expecting to see it and got incredibly lucky. I watched it briefly and before it took off it raised its wings and let the wind keep them up so I had about 5 seconds to get shots like this. That is a long time from a photographer's perspective. As for it being a female, I was going by size. This was a big bird.

Boreal Owl (6) (Aegolius funereus) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1278) (Comments - 3473)
Canada (Québec) A follow up trip brought us repeat success with an early morning sighting. The bird does not hunt during daytime unlike its cousin the Northern Hawk Owl which we saw recently. It sleeps most of the time, waking every few hours, preening and sometimes moving to a different perch just to exercise its wings. It does not become active until after dark.

Canada (Québec) We made three attempts in recent weeks to locate this bird and on the third try we were successful. It was worth the effort and we got to see it with its eyes open. Owls look much better when they are awake.

Northern Hawk-Owl (14) (Surnia ulula) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1278) (Comments - 3473)
Canada (Ontario) I checked out this bird as a way to start off the New Year. Sometimes the owl hovers over its target before plunging.

Northern Hawk-Owl (14) (Surnia ulula) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1278) (Comments - 3473)
Canada (Ontario) Being attacked by a Northern Shrike. The owl is competition, not its next meal. I had the camera on a tripod and was watching the shrike, waiting to see if it would attack. I started shooting a couple of seconds before it reached the owl, otherwise a shot like this would be very difficult to get.

Northern Hawk-Owl (14) (Surnia ulula) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1278) (Comments - 3473)
  It was a two owl day, my first for this species. The birds were a couple of hours apart. A few Northern Hawk Owls have come south this winter. Next year we should have Great Grays if the boreal rodent cycle works in our favour. Hawk Owls are well known for being cooperative subjects. There was no need to push the birds for photos. We just waited and they often came close to us.

Canada (Ontario) This particular bird was not supposed to be a good subject because it spends most of its time hunting from power lines. However, for two minutes it flew across the road and perched at eye level at the edge of a forest. Worked for me. This photo is uncropped. The bird was so close I had to back up to fit it in the frame. That's a nice problem to have.
