Alright - changed ID, Liam - thanks for your advise :)
I am very sure this is a Long-eared Owl, yes. :)
I am not sure, Liam, no. So if you are, I'll change the ID. Are you? Thanks in advance.
Hi Lars, are you sure that's a Striped Owl and not a Long-eared Owl (Asio otus)? Striped Owls have stripes on their bellies, not chevrons like this one. Striped Owls also have black lining along their facial disks and, most importantly, brown eyes.
