What a beautiful owl Andrea. Here are some things I know about them: They are the most common of the large owls in S Africa. They are usually solitary or maybe a pair and rely on camolflage to hide them during the day. They eat birds, frogs, guineaffowl and small mammals. Usually 2 white eggs are laid per season and take a month to hatch. The chicks are dependend on the parents for feeding until they are about 5 weeks old.

Andrea, that is one bird I never seen in the wild. Excellent shot. Anna :)
