Gevlekte ooruil / Spotted Eagle Owl by 


ART: Wildlife in Africa
Die Gevlekte ooruil is ’n roofvoël van mediumgrootte met die kenmerkende “oortjies” van ’n ooruil en groot geel oë. Hulle is die kleinste van die ooruilspesies. Hierdie uile is die mees algemene uil wat in ’n groot verskeidenheid van habitatte voorkom – hulle het goed aangepas by die mens en is algemeen in beboude gebiede en in menslike nedersettings.
Engelse naam: Spotted Eagle-owl
Wetenskaplike naam: Bubo africanus – “Bubo” (Lat) is waarskynlik ’n klanknabootsende naam en “africanus” (Lat) dui daarop dat hierdie uil “van Afrika” is.

Hierdie spesie kom wydverspreid voor in sub-Sahara Afrika, uitgesonderd in die digste beboste gebiede en die droogste woestyndele.

I dedicate this to my co-host Maree Clarkson
to use in her Saturday Chat in our group Afrikaans is my moedertaal!It is illegal to capture or keep these owls in most Southern African countries, but the nestlings are easy to tame and they make affectionate, companionable pets. However, feeding them is demanding, because they do best on balanced diets that include feathers, bones and various tissues, not just meat.

    Hoe wonderlik Liz, pragtig gedoen! Wanneer ek vanaand met my twee uile praat (wat al twee stelle kleintjies hier groot gemaak het!) sal ek vir hulle sê hulle moet hier kom kyk!
