The Tawny Owl (strix aluco)
This is the Owl that hoots after dark and makes the traditional Owl note. It is often seen at night as a large shadowy shape when flying to a roadside fence post. A very capable hunter.
I hope you will like him.
Ever grateful thanks for the wonderful and generous response given to the Buzzard. Particular thanks to those who awarded their UA's that is Ken,Lillian,Simon and Ray 330. I have already thanked so you know who you are.

An exceedingly fine portrait of this tawny owl, the details in the plumage have been perfectly recorded and I like the setting you've captured him/her in

Beauty Ron - this is also the hoot you hear in American shows like CSI which is amusing really as they don't go as far west as that - Midsomer Murders is about right!!! Mima at ICBP is always very fond of telling us that snippet! Take care, Lou
