Our 2017 Top 12 Most Unique Sightings: #10 - Northern Hawk Owl | Ghost Bear
After our move from Toronto to Calgary, we encountered a prolonged stretch of brutal luck. Aside from a brief coyote sighting and a nice afternoon viewing of a short-eared owl, we saw nothing from early October 2016 until late January 2017. Thanks to the owl-spotting skills of friend Kerri Martin, the long stretch of futility ended with a first for us: A northern hawk-owl.
