As was I driving along, wishing I had been able to get a closer pic, I see another Northern Hawk Owl right off the road! Sitting on a high line wire, I was able to walk right up and was about 40 ft away. Perturbed, it flew across the road into a tree. But the tree was still pretty close! So I took lots more pics and got some video (at bottom of page).

Check out those talons!
In the tree across the road
There was a pair of Hairy Woodpeckers that were not impressed with the owl's presence.
This one was brave enough to get close. The forced perspective of the shot makes the woodpecker seem large, but it is actually a couple feet closer than the owl.
