Ural Owl (Strix uralensis), nesting female 20.4.2008, Kiuruvesi.

 

Specie that don`t nest near my home...as a matter of fact this was the second time I saw Ural Owl in nature.

 

This at least 5 years old female has 4 eggs, quite a many for Ural Owls - I was told:).

 

Thank`s to Petri who`s holding owl in his firm but gentle grip.
