He/she is lovely, it's a fav :) You know, it looks very similiar to strix aluco (euroasian tawny owl) (no wonder since they both belong to strigidae family from what I remember). It's widely distributed around Europe (there's even a clan of 'em living in the old cemetary next to my house). Their hoot is so nice, can't ever get enough of it. Is this charcoal or pencil?
