Ural Owl, eastern Hokkaido

We saw two Ural Owls during five days in Hokkaido. This bird was 'staked out', roosting in clear view in a hollow in what appeared to be the biggest tree in its forest. I think it looks like a happy, fat baby! The second bird was a rather fresh roadkill, which had been hit crossing low over a road and was still in good condition. Tragic.
