December 2016


The Hawk-owls (Surnia ulula) are again on winter visit in Denmark. One of them was resting in Kongelunden near Copenhagen Airport. As in the former years (2012, 2014) these owls will probably be among the best documented birds in Denmark. The Hawk-owl is a northern bird, and the population fluctuates greatly from year to year following the rodent populations. After a successful breeding season in combination with break down in the rodent populations, especially juveniles may occur far outside the breeding area during winter. Here you will find my portraits of the owl, along with a short video from December 23rd. Go to gallery.
