How beautiful and what a great shot. The markings are so hawk like. Is that how this owl gets it name?

Beautiful, although I'm not sure I would have centred the owl.

Lives in habitat that resemble some of the smaller hawks (hence its name).

Great clarity.
I agree with Ian.
Just crop it with a 1/3 or so perspective and it may look even better.

Plus it's diurnal and its perching posture is more hawk than owl-like. Nice shot.
