[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Ural Owl (Strix uralensis) is a medium-large nocturnal owl of the genus Strix, with up to 15 subspecies found in Europe and northern Asia.

The Ural Owl is smaller than the Great Grey Owl, and much larger than the Tawny Owl, which it superficially resembles. Distinguishing features apart from the size are the pale, buffish grey-brown plumage, with copious dark brown streaking on the back, back of the head and underparts. It has a round head with plain buffish-grey facial discs, orange-yellow bill and small black eyes. The tail is long and wedge-shaped, with dark barring on the uppertail, and the wings are rounded. Sexes are similar, with no seasonal variation. Size: 50–59 cm; Wingspan: Male 115 cm, female 125 cm; Weight: Male 540-730g, female 720-1200g.

Witaj Jacku,
Bardzo efektowne zdjecie. Sowy zawsze wywoluja wrazenie swoim wygladem ale tezsa dosc rzadko widziane. Zazwyczaj aktywne sa po zmierzchu a wtedy z fotografowaniem jest trudno.
Pozdrawiam, Pawel
