[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Ural Owl feeds on rodents and medium-sized to large birds such as Jays and Willow Grouse, although normally only up to the size of a Woodpigeon. Its territorial call, which can carry up to two kilometres, is a soft, deep 'wo-ho….. woho uhwo-ho'. Birds also give unmistakable yapping ' wau - wau ' calls, which are delivered by both sexes.

Hello Szabo,
I would be thrilled to be able to capture a photo of an owl such as this. I could probably count on one hand the number of sightings I have seen in my entire life.
This is simply an awesome shot filled with excellent detail and attractive natural colors. Love the yellow beak and toes!!
