Long Eared Owl

The Long Eared Owl is one that definitely has prominent ears and that is where their name comes from. They are quite thin compared to the body formation of so many other species of owls out there. They are only about 16 inches tall when they are fully grown. The wing span though can cover about 40 inches.

They are a brownish color with some orange to them as well. They also feature spots of gray and white on the chest area. The coloring scheme will actually vary depending on the location where these owls live. They tend to strive to blend in very well to their surroundings for protection.
