Huuhkaja

Eagle Owl (Bubo bubo), young one. 29.6.2007, Keminmaa.

 

After the rain and after searching my hair was even more wet than this owlets:). This and it`s little sister (or brother) happened to hide in wet birch bushes. Seemed that there was enough food because both were lying on a piece of meat, and it was middle of the day - eagle owl adults hunt at nights. This little one did weight 1940 grams.

 

After ringing took them to same place because of their food and because they had found dry place...it seemed it would rain all day.
