The tawny owl is an owl the size of a pigeon. It has a rounded body and head, with a ring of dark feathers around its face surrounding the dark eyes. It is mainly reddish brown above and paler underneath. It is a widespread breeding species in England, Wales and Scotland but not found in Ireland. Birds are mainly residents with established pairs probably never leaving their territories. Young birds disperse from breeding grounds in autumn.

Well done & TFS.

Hello Les,
The eyes are a strong and beautiful catchpoint and the whole image is top class. Very beautiful indeed. Best wishes.

Hi Les,
I like your owl. Those glaring I "dare you" eyes are wonderful. I like the details in the feathers and the nice natural environment in behind. Great capture.
Have a nice weekend.
