OWLS
Nocturnal, erect-standing birds of prey characterized by large, rounded heads, large forward-facing eyes set in a flattened face and feathered legs (except for Pel’s Fishing Owl). Some have feathered adornments on their heads that resemble ears. Immature are usually darker and fluffier than adults.

THE GIANT or Verreaux’s Eagle Owl
A large grey owl, immature is browner.
Told by pink eyelids and dark brown eyes at all ages. ‘Ear’ tufts not always raised.
Voice is a series of deep grunts ‘hu=hu=hu,hu-hu’; female and young utter a long drawn –out whistle that may be repeated all night.
Singly on large trees in bushveld and open savanna, especially along rivers and watercourses. 60-5 cm.

This shoot was shortly after the “Giant Eagle Owl” swooped out of a high tree to a palmtree, close-by, and grabbed a “weavers nest”, with chics inside, and went straight to this tree with the nest in his claws. It still is under his claw. He ripped it open with his beak and had his breakfast very early, just after sunrise.
