Black hawk owl

in #animals5 years ago

The northern hawk-owl (Surnia ulula) is a medium sized true owl of the northern latitudes. It is non-migratory and usually stays within its breeding range, though it sometimes irrupts southward. It is one of the few owls that is neither nocturnal nor crepuscular, being active only during the day. This is the only living species in the genus Surnia of the family Strigidae, the "typical" owls (as opposed to barn owls, Tytonidae). The species is sometimes called simply the hawk owl; however, many species of owls in the genus Ninox are also called "hawk owls

Beautiful photo, and I can see where the name hawk owl comes from, it looks a bit like a hawk.

Why do you comment on obviously stolen (plagiarised) photo with obviously plagiarised text? :-)
