Hawks – 0; Owls – 1

Cape Coral Burrowing Owls Photos

SCORE ONE FOR THE OWLS

A while back I was sent a photo of a dead hawk.  The person who sent it had been walking his dog and found the hawk lying on the ground, dead.  In its talons was a live Burrowing Owl.  He released the owl, which promptly flew away.  The guy went home to get his camera and took the photo of what is probably a Coopers Hawk.  They are the hawks most likely to attack the owls, but  not knowing the size of the hawk, ID is not absolute. Owls-1, Hawks- 0
