Hawk Owl in Ashton

3216 views Nature Lover December 9, 2019 Ottawa, ON Date shot: December 5, 2019

I was told about the owl last week. Went to see it 3 times. Last time was on Saturday. Sunny afternoon. Owl always perched near the exit ramp (see RED X). Owls and major highways are not a good mix. A number of years ago, another northern hawk owl was killed just down the road also along Hwy 7. I asked if it could be trapped and relocated to a safer area but the answer was that the owl chose that spot for a reason, meaning that is where the food is. They do trap snowy owls at airports and relocate them so why not other owls? I know, owls at airports are a danger to people / planes.
