Ural owl (Strix uralensis)
I love owls!! They are such wonderful birds. May I save this picture to my owl collection?
Yes of course, thanks for asking. I love owls too and as it's rare to see them in the wild I like to get the opportunity to see them up close at these bird of prey centres.
Thank you! So many of these owls I would never see as they are from other countries. I got to see a snowy owl once in a bird of prey center, but they said it was only on loan and would be going home to Alaska. It was beautiful, all white and large.
Yes I've seen a snowy owl in flight at a BOP centre, that was something to see!
