Great Grey Owl / カラフトフクロウ

June 7, 2011

4 September 1998, Finland
‘Strixnebulosa’
design: E Brunn

Maybe the owl I saw last summer in France was this Great Grey Owl, as I saw a kind of white face?  But this type of owl lives in Northern areas and is very large – it is also threatened in numbers.  In fact, what I saw was the more common Barn Owl – and its face is featured in this stamp.

去年の夏に見たフクロウはこれだったかな?と白っぽい顔のところを見て思ったけど、これも違いました。カラフトフクロウはもっと北に住んでいるし巨大で、最近は数が減っている種類のようです。わたしが見たのはメンフクロウでした。この切手になっているのがそれで、白いお面を付けているような顔です。
