These beauties were spotted in late March northwest of Alberta, Canada (though apparently, they’re rare there). Can you name the species? A big thanks to Anne Elliott, who put this image—and several others of these birds—on our Flickr group page.

Species: Northern Hawk Owl (Surnia ulula)

Thanks to everyone for their guesses. So many people got it right! A quiz about these birds coming soon...
