This is also known as an eagle-owl. He is a little smaller than a bald eagle and bigger than a snowy owl.  It has a wide range across much or Europe and Asia, but is also fairly sedentary in that they rarely travel out of their own territory.

for the letter L - Lithuania/Lietuva


  1. I like the selvedge fir tree, makes it looks as though bubo bubo (love a repeating Latin name) is perched on the top.

  2. I have this eagle-owl on a stamp from another country. To see soon! :D

  3. Only ever seen one - in a zoo unfortunately.
