Ural Owl

Strix uralensis

The Ural owl is classed as an ‘earless owl’ and is closely related to other owls such as the great grey owl and the tawny owl.



Size: 50 - 62cm
Weight: Male – 500 - 950g, Female – 570 - 1300g



The Ural owl usually inhabits forests, woodlands and wetlands. They are most active at dawn and dusk and are often seen near human dwellings.



They feed mainly on small mammals such as voles, squirrels and hares but will also eat frogs, beetles and small birds. They can detect prey 20 – 30cm under snow!



They nest in hollow trees or the old twig nests of other large birds. Around 2 to 3 eggs are incubated by the female for around 28 days. The male will help to feed the young.



Ural owls are not endangered in the wild as their population is very large and has a wide range.
