Long-eared Owl with yellow-orange eyes

The Long-eared Owl (Asio otus) is a species of owl which breeds in Europe, Asia, and North America. Breeding season is from February to July. This bird is partially migratory, moving south in winter from the northern parts of its range. Its habitat is forest close to open country. Asio otus is more elusive than other owls in this family.

 

This Owl was taken in Germany nearby castle of Kasselburg. The Sun was about going down which gives the picture a nice warm glow.

 

De ransuil (Asio otus) is een grote uil, die in heel Europa voorkomt. Opvallend aan het uiterlijk van de ransuil zijn met name zijn oorpluimen, die overigens geen echte oren zijn. Verwarring met de oehoe, die ook oorpluimen heeft, is mogelijk maar deze laatste is aanzienlijk groter dan de ransuil.
