[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Tawny owls are the most common and widespread of British owls. They emit the characteristic courtship ‘twit-twooo’ which is actually a duet between male and female. Typically, tawny owls occupy a favourite perch in broadleaf woodlands, from which they drop on to unsuspecting small mammals, such as voles. The inedible remains are regurgitated in the form of a pellet. Labour is divided between breeding pairs since the female incubates the clutch of eggs, and the male is responsible for feeding the chicks once they hatch.
