This owl of the boreal forest looks like a hawk with long tapered tail feathers. The northern hawk looks like an owl but behaves like a hawk. They perch on the tops of tall trees surveying for prey in a similar way that hawks do. The owl flies off its perch when it sees or hears something on the ground even if the prey is far away.
