phylum Chordata Blakiston's Fish Owl is specialized in hunting riparian areas. Its habitat is riparian forest, with large, old trees for nest-sites, near lakes, rivers, springs and shoals which don't freeze in winter. Henry Seebohm named this bird after the English naturalist Thomas Blakiston, who collected the original specimen in Hakodate on Hokkaidō, Japan in 1883.

Blakiston's Fish Owl is the largest living species of owl. For more information, visit the Wikipedia entry.
