Tawny Owl

This is Knowley, a Tawny Owl, she was rescued on the 4th May 2007, she had fallen from the nest as the ivy had been cut away from the oak tree, and she and her siblings had all fallen out. She had to be hand fed and as such became imprinted, she is now used on our flying display and educational talks.

Description

The Tawny Owl (Strix aluco) is a medium-sized owl, 37–43 cm in length with an 81–96 cm wingspan, which is common in woodlands across much of Eurasia. Its underparts are pale with dark streaks, and the upperparts are either brown or grey. The nest is typically in a tree hole, but will also use old Magpie nests, squirrel dreys or holes in buildings, and readily takes to nest boxes. The eggs and young are fiercely defended against potential predators.
