Tawny Owl

Strix Aluco

The most common owl in Britain and also known as the ‘Brown Owl’, this nocturnal species hunt a largely rodent diet in woodland. Tawny owls use their excellent hearing to find prey in the dark and use their ‘tawny’ coloured feathers to blend in perfectly with their habitat.

Tawny owls are actually the only owl to use “twit-twoo” as their call and this is made by two owls calling to each other.
