eagle owl

The Eurasian Eagle Owl is a species of horned owl resident in much of Europe and Asia.

 

The Eagle Owl is a very large and powerful bird, similar in size, but typically slightly smaller than the Golden Eagle. It is the largest species of owl with a wingspan of up to 200 cm. Adults can weigh in excess of 4 kg, in comparison the common Barn Owl weighs about 500g. It mainly feeds on small mammals, but can kill prey up to the size of foxes and young deer, if taken by surprise. Larger prey is consumed on the ground which leaves the bird vulnerable. It will also take many other birds including other birds of prey.
