The Tawny or Wood Owl, Strix aluco sylvatica.
The Tawny or Wood Owl, Strix aluco sylvatica, is a woodland dwelling bird unlike the
barn owl. It has a rich brown handsomely marked plumage. The Tawny Owl is easily
recognised by its long, wavering eerie call. It hunts, mainly among the trees catching
a variety of food such as rats, mice, small birds, young game and insects.
Here then, is a beautiful original water colour painting of the Tawny Owl.
