SKU: Owl2 Category:

Although not native to the UK, the Little Owl was successfully introduced in the early 19th century and has become established as our smallest species of owl. Elsewhere, their range extends from North Africa, throughout continental Europe, and into the warm and temperate regions of Asia. A hollow tree is a favoured nest site and a pair, which bond for life, will typically raise three or four chicks that will fledge after about 35 days, and become independent in the Autumn.

I wanted this portrait to capture their charming character as well as the vulnerability of the young brood discovering the wide world for the first time.
