This owl you can only find in the Arctic region of our world. We were so fortune to see it as we actually was on our way to the airport in Kirkenes. It was three of them spread out. A family that did not want to be seen in one shot :)

About Northern hawk-owl on wiki

And this is the last species I will share from the Varanger trip. There was a few more like White tailed eagle, and some crows, mallards and common sparrows that I did not spend time to capture. I have 20 species posted and 18 of them was lifers. Not bad for a winter visit to the Arctics.
