Wallpaper of the Week: Wild Winter: Snow and the Hawk Owl

toggle-button

This weeks wallpaper is a dramatic shot of a Northern Hawk Owl on the wing as its feet brush the snow - very monochrome with a palette of grey, black and white. Icons do very well with this wallpaper. If you're heading in to the winter months it's a chilly (but awesome) shot. Those headed for warmer months can cool off with this picture.
It took me some time to track down what kind of bird this is and I'm not positive of the ID, so if you have a firm identification that of a different bird let me know.
Update: site visitor /e.tomchin has identified this beauty as a Western Hawk Owl. Thanks!
