The eagle owl is a large bird native to northern Europe and America, and one of the most fearsome hunters in its natural habitat, the tundra. Its white plumage serves as camouflage in these white landscapes.
It is one of the 11 species of birds that are in serious danger of extinction in Finland.
This owl breeds by laying a variable number of eggs directly on the ground. The female incubates them for a period of four to five weeks, until they hatch.
Once the chicks hatch, they remain in their mother's care for at least one month. She protects them from the cold while the male takes care of feeding the female during this period. It feeds on medium-sized birds and small fish, although the most important part of its diet is made up of hares.
