The Stern Gaze of the Northern Hawk-Owl

During a walk in the Sandemar nature reserve area that is a bird-protection area I found this day hunter sitting up in a long dead birch tree.The Hawk Owl has exceptional hearing and can plunge into snow to capture rodents below the surface.
This capture of the species I got this kind of searching-deep-gaze that is hard to forget! The Northern Hawk-Owl seems to give a exited bird-watcher a quite a stern and a vivid gaze! The Hawk-Owl prefers open, forest-type environments when perching.
