Eurasian Eagle Owl (Bubo bubo)

Oehoe-boom5_SvdW
A Eurasian Eagle Owl or European Eagle owl (Bubo bubo or Oehoe in Dutch) one of the largest species of owl has decided to enjoy the first signs of spring in a little village near my hometown. During my first visit the owl just sat on a roof extension, moving just a little bit. On my second visit, in the morning, the owl was a bit more active while sitting in a tree. So I took some photos and recorded a bit of video. One thing’s for sure, this impressive bird is a lot more patient than I am.
