Owls such as the Northern hawk owl (Surnia ulula), great grey owl (Strix nebulosa), Ural owl (Strix uralensis), Eurasian eagle owl (Bubo bubo) and Eurasian pygmy owl (Glaucidium passerinum) can be spotted in Kuhmo. The opportunities for photography vary annually.

The changes in the owl populations create a challenge for photography. We stay up to date and inform you of owls for photography in our blog.
