Eagle Owl (draw a bird day)

Love these Owl pictures!

method two madness

spread your wings
carry the night in
silent flight

The eagle owl is both one of the largest and longest-lived owls. With wing spans up to 6 feet, it has no natural predators, although it is sometimes mobbed by crows. The leading causes of death– electrocution, hunting, and poisoning–are man-made.

Nesting on cliffs or rocky outcrops, it has a wide distribution throughout Europe and Asia. I love its binomial name–Bubo Bubo.

Eagle owls are solitary, territorial, and nocturnal. They can more often be heard, having a large number of vocalizations, than seen.

    1. Did it try to deliver any letters? We have an owl nest outside our bedroom window. The Great Horned owl pair use it in the winter. I love their sound the most, classic hoot-hoot-hoo hoo. The Barred owls are invasive here and come in the summer. They’re always asking ‘Who cooks for you?” and I find it rather patronizing because; “Shove off bird! I can’t afford a personal chef!” It’s not as easy to fall asleep too, but they’re own here for three months out of the year.
