The Ural owl’s four-foot wingspan allows it to glide gracefully from perch to perch as it scans the ground for smaller animals to hunt. Any surplus food the owl catches is stored either in its nest or in nearby spaces for later. Males of this species claim their territory by singing from their perch, and mates can be heard dueting during courtship. These beautiful birds of prey live in deciduous forests in Northern Europe through northern Russia and Siberia all the way to Korea and Japan.
Thank you to the for the opportunity to photograph this bird at the Monticello Center in Italy.
