Description

Mongolia Wildlife 3D series starting with the Ural Owl. 2oz of pure silver shaped in relief you have never seen before. Two black Swarovski� eyes make this a gem in any coin or owl collection. Wisdom in your hand!

The Ural owl (Strix uralensis) is a medium-sized nocturnal owl of the genus Strix, with up to 15 subspecies found in Europe and northern Asia.

The Ural owl is smaller than the great grey owl, and much larger than the tawny owl, which it superficially resembles. Distinguishing features apart from the size are the pale, buffish grey-brown plumage, with copious dark brown streaking on the back of the head and underparts. It has a round head with plain buffish-grey facial discs, orange-yellow bill and small black eyes. The tail is long and wedge-shaped, with dark barring on the upper tail, and the wings are rounded. Flight is direct and purposeful, recalling that of the common buzzard.
