I am looking at you!

A medium size long winged owl with long ear tufts and piercing orange eyes. it enjoys a large range from western Europe to north Africa, China and Japan. It winters as far south as Pakistan, southern India and southern China - it is also found in North America. Interestingly, it is thought to be the most nocturnal of all owls only hunting in the darkest and quietest part of the night.
