Facts

  • Eurasian Eagle Owls are incredibly similar in appearance to great horned owls. They are brown in color, with dark brown or black markings across their bodies. Their eyes are bright orange and quite noticeable.

  • Eagle-owls are found in much of Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. These birds live in many habitats but mostly in mountain regions, coniferous forests, steppes, and other relatively remote places.

  • Eagle owls are carnivores. They hunt different prey species, predominantly small mammals but also birds of varying sizes, reptiles, amphibians, fish, large insects.

  • No, Eurasians do not make good pets. They are large, wild birds, with large talons and sharp beaks. In most places, it is also illegal to own any Eagle Owl as a pet.

  • Eurasian eagle-owls rarely assume the so-called "tall-thin position", which is when an owl adopts an upright stance with plumage closely compressed and may stand tightly beside a tree trunk. This position is commonly thought to aid camouflage if encountering a threatening or novel animal or sound.

  • As the breeding season arrives, eagle owl pairs reunite and build a nest together. These owls are monogamous, and pairs continue to breed year after year with the same partner.
