Edelweiss is a well-known mountain flower. The plant prefers rocky places at about 1800–3000 m altitude. Leaves and flowers are covered with white hairs and appear woolly. The dense hair appears to be an adaptation to high altitudes, protecting the plant from cold, aridity and ultraviolet radiation. As a scarce short-lived flower found in remote mountain areas, the plant has been used as a symbol for alpinism. The flowers bloom between July and September. Cveti 3v

Boreal owl

Our town Dzierżoniów is situated near the Owl Mountains, so we had to write about owls as unfortunately there are less and less owls in Poland, even in the Owl Mountains. Asia studied one of the smallest owl - Boreal owl. Boreal Owl breeds in dense coniferous forests across northern North America and Eurasia, and in mountain ranges such as the Alps and the Rockies. It lays 3-6 eggs in a tree hole. Across much of Europe, and to a lesser extent in Asia and North America, naturalists and biologists put up nest boxes for these and other small owls. This smallish owl ( it’s about 24-26 cm long and about 90-200 g heavy) eats mainly voles and other mammals but also birds as well as insects and other invertebrates. It is largely nocturnal, though in the northern most parts of its range, it is forced to hunt during daylight because of the very short nights in summer. Boreal Owls live up to 16 years. In Central Europe there are about 5-6 thousand boreal owls pairs, in Poland - about 8 hundred pairs.
