Seeing a hawk owl is always a treat. These uncommon owls, which look hawk-like (hence their name), typically nest deep in the muskeg. They are most often seen in Central Alberta during the winter, when they wander widely in search of mice, voles and other prey. They are one of the few Alberta owl species that hunt during the day.
