The Eurasian Eagle Owl is a very large and powerful bird with a wingspan of 160–188 cm (63–74 in), with the largest specimens attaining 200 cm (79 in). The total length of the species can range from 58 to 75 cm (23 to 30 in). Females weigh 1.75–4.2 kg (3.9–9.3 lb) and males weigh 1.5–3 kg (3.3–6.6 lb). The great size, bulky, barrel-shaped build, ear tufts and orange eyes make this a distinctive species.
