Owls of the Raptor, birds of prey sanctuary Lincolnshire.

Whilst at one of the summer shows I came across this wonderful display of Owls.

The Raptor Foundation that was displaying the birds is a rescue and rehabilitation centre for raptors that are unable to be returned to the wild for various reasons.




The British Barn Owl (Tyto alba). The scientific name derives from the Greek word tuto meaning 'night-owl' and the Latin for 'white', so it literally translates as the 'White night Owl'.



The Indian Eagle Owl (Bubo bengalensis). It is found naturally across the Indian sub-Continent and as far north as the Himalayas.


Eurasion Eagle Owl (Bubo bubo). The largest of all owls it can be found  found throughout Europe, Scandinavia, Russia, the Middle East & Asia, with some being found breeding as far south as the Sahara in Africa.

These are magnificent creatures I am sure you will agree.

I hope I have named these birds correctly but I am sure if I haven't an 'eagle eyed' reader will correct me.
