Northern Hawk Owl at Crex Meadows

Posted by Kirk

This video of a Northern Hawk Owl was shot by Dale Bohlke at the Fish Lake Wildlife Area which is part of the Glacial Lake Grantsburg Wildlife Management Complex in Wisconsin. Fish Lake Wildlife Area is close to Crex Meadows for those familiar with the area. The land is 3 miles from Grantsburg, WI and just an hour and a half drive from the Twin Cities.

The video was shot on December 27th 2009. At last report (1/5/10) this bird is still at this site. It can be found two mile south of fish lake road in the Fish Lake Wildlife Area. The close proximity to the Twin Cities makes it a great target for birders who want a chance to glimpse this northern species.
