A couple of Blakiston's fish owls (1)
A couple of Blakiston's fish owls in Rausu, Shiretoko, Hokkaido, Japan. The male was catching a fish. This male won a battle against an old male, which had lived there, earlier in this year. He and a daughter of the old male became a new couple. During this transition period, the owls came out rather irregularly, but now they come out as frequently as the days of the old couple.
