Owls looking



These two curious owls followed our every move when we visited Järvzoo, even though they are night owls. They are great grey owls of which Sweden's got between 400 and 3500 depending on time of year and how much food they've got. Their main dish is small rodents like mice, voles, hares and the like. In Sweden it's endangered mainly due to loss of areas to nest because of intensive logging.
