Northern Hawk Owl

I spotted a NORTHERN HAWK OWL just south of the town of Togo yesterday afternoon around dusk. We might be seeing more of the northern owls this winter as I have heard that the vole population in Canada has crashed. Evidently, the vole population is on a 4 year cycle, so the last big invasion of northern owls was in the winter of 2005 which means we might be in for an invasion this year.
