Northern Hawk Owl

I visited Harrington Beach State Park to see/photograph the Northern Hawk Owl that has been a resident for a while. I figured with sightings of Great Gray Owls in southern Wisconsin no other birders would be at the park - I was right! This provided an opportunity to photograph the owl with minimal impact to its welfare:
