Northern Hawk Owl banking by gregster09 Northern Hawk Owl banking by gregster09
This owl is rather atypical for an owl. He's only as long as a robin (though wider and with much larger wings), hunts by day is extremely aggressive and will even eat small birds. I was extremely lucky to get one frame of him banking. This is cropped a bit more than I normally would, but it's a shot I wouldn't want to pass up.

This is a great capture, I love the hawk owls! It's encouraging to know that they are aggressive and quick enough to take small birds !

I have added it to the favourites over at #FlockingOwls, a club devoted to these great raptors :)

I can see why, particularly when you first look at the image and think he is high in the sky and then on closer inspection he is near the floor.
