Caught prey can be felt by owls with the use of filoplumes —like feathers on the beak and feet that act as "feelers". Their far vision, particularly in low light, is exceptionally good. These two species, which are on average about 2. Different species of owls make different sounds; this wide range of calls aids owls in finding mates or announcing their presence to potential competitors, and also aids ornithologists and birders in locating these birds and recognizing species.
As noted above, the facial disc helps owls to funnel the sound of prey to their ears. In many species, these discs are placed asymmetrically, for better directional location.
The plumage of owls is generally cryptic, but many species have facial and head markings, including face masks, ear tufts and brightly coloured irises. These markings are generally more common in species inhabiting open habitats, and are thought to be used in signaling with other owls in low light conditions. Owl eggs usually have a white color and an almost spherical shape, and range in number from a few to a dozen, depending on species. Eggs are laid at intervals of 1 to 3 days and do not hatch at the same time.
This fact accounts for the wide variation in the size of sibling nestlings. Owls do not construct nests, but rather look for a sheltered nesting site or an abandoned nest in trees, underground burrows, or in buildings, barns and caves. Most owls are nocturnal , actively hunting their prey only in water and darkness. Several types of owl, however, are crepuscular —active during the twilight hours of dawn and dusk ; one example is the Pygmy owl Glaucidium.
A few owls are active during the day also; examples are the Burrowing Owl Speotyto cunicularia and the Short-eared Owl Asio flammeus. The serrations on the leading edge of an owl's flight feathers reduce noise. Owl eyes each have nictitating membranes that can move independently of each other, as seen on this Spotted Eagle-Owl in Johannesburg , South Africa. Owls yawn. Much of the owls' hunting strategy depends on stealth and surprise.
Owls have at least two adaptations that aid them in achieving stealth. First, the dull coloration of their' feathers can render them almost invisible under certain conditions. Secondly, serrated edges on the leading edge of owls' remiges muffle an owl's wing beats, allowing an owl's flight to be practically silent.
Some fish-eating owls, for which silence has no evolutionary advantage, lack this adaptation. An owl's sharp beak and powerful talons allow it to kill its prey before swallowing it whole if it is not too big.
Scientists studying the diets of owls are helped by their habit of regurgitating the indigestible parts of their prey such as bones, scales and fur in the form of pellets.
These "owl pellets" are plentiful and easy to interpret, and are often sold by companies to schools for dissection by students as a lesson in biology and ecology. All owls are carnivorous birds of prey and live mainly on a diet of insects and small rodents such as mice, rats and hares. Some owls are also specifically adapted to hunt fish. They are very adept in hunting in their respective environments.The Birds of Great Britain Systematically Arranged, Accurately Engraved, and Painted from Nature. | No Comments.
