AbstractThree breeding pairs of Northern Hawk Owls were observed in northeastern Ontario in the vicinity of Timmins and Iroquois Falls in 2001, and two nests and a brood were recorded. The young from one nest fledged prematurely (likely due to a storm) and the another nest probably failed. Four other territorial pairs were observed. Notes on nest sites, feeding and nest attendance were taken.
