Plot synopsis
People say that this bird is the first to greet the sunrise. While the rest of the world is still asleep, Blakiston's fish owl is already hunting in the first beams of the awakening sun. There is not a single creature more mysterious on the eastern part of the continent, on the shores of the majestic Pacific Ocean. This fish-owl belongs to a genus so ancient that nobody dares claim with certainty where it comes from. This rarest bird chooses the most remote corners of the Ussuriysk taiga as its home. However, we have taken up the challenge to spot this secretive fish owl. And we admit the difficulty of this task. It is incredibly hard to find Blakiston's fish owl since you can’t be sure if it is even there or not… And once you’re off to the Amur taiga in search of this rarest bird, prepare to become the one who is looked for!
