Long-eared Owl
Asio otus

This beautiful owl is not as common here as it once was. There has been a 50% reduction in sightings since 1997. Loss of habitat on the coast and inland has reduced the number of nesting sites. This owl is very social. In the winter they cluster at resting sites during the day.
