Tawny Owl

The Tawny Owl is one of the most common birds of prey in Britain.

I just could not resist making an image of this little chap. But don’t be fooled in by the cute appearance. Tawny Owls are silent efficient killers which hunt their prey during the hours of darkness.

  2. Beautiful owl, gorgeous colors, Jim. How is it he’s out in the daytime? He looks as if he’s staring at you! 😉

    • Thanks Judy. This image was captured in a bird of prey sanctuary. I understand however, when cold in winter owls do occasionally sunbathe as they enjoy the warmth. (and probably only need a factor 8 sunscreen)
