So far in the last week 8 new Northern Hawk Owls have been reported in northeastern Minnesota. From what has been reported either on the MOU listserv & RBA's and other sources there are now 27 Northern Hawk Owls reported this fall season and we have not even officially began the winter season. It looks like this will be a great year for birders to locate Northern Hawk Owls. So far the hot spots are north of Two Harbors along CR 2 and along FR 11/16 where several Hawk Owls have been seen and also Sax Zim Bog area. Now that deer hunting season is officially over with I suspect more birders will now venture into these areas to look for owls.
