Tawny Owls

Scientific name: Strix aluco

Size: Up to 40cm

Distribution: Found throughout England, Scotland and Wales, but absent from Northern Ireland

Months seen: All year round

Habitat: Parks, gardens and wooded areas

Food: Small birds and mammals

Special features: Tawny Owls are sometimes called Brown Owls because of their colouring, or Wood Owls because of their favoured habitat. They are nocturnal birds, and during the day rest up in wooded areas, well camouflaged against the brown coloured tree bark.

The call of the tawny owl sounds something like "to-wooo" or sometimes "hoooouh.....ho, hohohohoooouh". This call is used by both males and females to attract each other, but it's more usually the male you will hear.

Ths is lovely hun. I once knew someone who ran a falconry centre and they had a tawny called "Bubble." She just loved being cuddled and used to look up at me with those beautiful big eyes.
