NEW EXHIBITION!  Tadashi Shimada: Blakiston's Owl 

A typical Blakiston’s fish owl measures about 70 cm. Its wing span is almost 1.8 m. It is the largest living species of owls in the world. In addition to Japan, Blakiston’s fish owls can be found in north-eastern China and Ussuri, Amur, Sakhalin and south Kurile regions of Russia. In Japan, Blakiston’s fish owls are found only in Hokkaido. They used to inhabit all parts of Hokkaido, but presently, only a small number of them are known to be living in limited areas on the eastern part of Hokkaido. 

It is estimated that about 140 are living in Hokkaido today, but nobody knows the true status. They are the species of bird most threatened with possible extinction in Japan.
