      They have never bred at Chester Zoo, they only had a single specimen for a while.

      What a beautiful owl. I love the contrast in this photo; the owls feathers, its yellow eyes, against the white background.

      Beautiful shot. This is a typical position for the wild Hawk Owls that I have seen in Sweden. At the top of a branch, fully visible i full daylight. Most are not shy either.
      BTW. Helsinki Zoo bred them, I think.
