Tawny Owls

The tawny owl is a short in stature owl commonly found in woodlands across much of Europe. Its feathers are pale brown or gray with darker streaks. They usually nest in a hollowed out tree hole because it protects the tawnys eggs and young against predators. The Tawny Owl is nocturnal bird of prey. It hunts rodents and smaller birds, usually by dropping from a perch to seize its prey, which it swallows whole. Nesting starts anytime from the end of March to beginning of April and hatching occurs at the end of April to First part of May.
