Northern Hawk-Owl rescued by a Finnish kayaker

The Northern Hawk [Owl] was plucked from the freezing waters in Finland by Pentti Taskinen and can be seen resting her feathered head on his boat. Pentti was [kayaking] on Lake Tuusula when he came across the tired and struggling creature. After being pulled onboard the boat, the bird rested on the deck of the [kayak] as it took a breather following [its] gruelling experience….

Once the [kayak] made it safely to shore, the revived animal flew off unaided. The Northern Hawk [Owl] is one of the few owls that are not nocturnal. It is usually found in North America, although it has been found in Great Britain and southern Russia.
