Major Northern Hawk Owl influx continues

Since last October, 75-80 Northern Hawk Owls (Surnia ulula) have been seen in Pirkanmaa county in Southern Finland and new individuals are found still every now and then. Last big influx here was between September 1987 - March 1988. During that time 77 owls were found. So, if you have never seen this beautiful owl, it's your chance now.
