This photograph was taken on Westham Island, Delta, December 2010. The winter of 2010-11 is the only time in recent years when we have experienced such a visitor to the Lower Mainland, though I now hear rumours of one in 2017-2018

For more information and range, etc. I suggest a visit to (Northern Hawk Owl).
