Long-eared Owl (Asio Otus)

Long-Eared Owls roost during winter. This means that they rest in one and the same place with other owls. They may roost communally with 7 to 50 owls. When you find a pellet underneath the trees, you can assume there is a roosting spot in the neighbourhood. Typical for these owls are the prominent ear tufts that they use to communicate with the other owls.
Not easy to see, but playing early in the morning or late in the evening, you have a chance of spotting this beautiful bird.
