2020 Christmasville Limited Edition - 7x11 Oil on Walnut
The tawny owl lives in the woodlands of the Palearctic (Western Europe & north Africa to the Bering Sea). Interestingly enough, this owl is crossing the Bering land bridge and moving to the North America. Generally he lives 4 years but one lived in the wild in Switzerland for 21 years, 11 months. Death rates by starvation are light in newly independent young where there are no unoccupied territories in the vicinity. These owls are non-migratory and highly territorial.
