Tawny owls are widespread and each pair will have its own territory with the young owls moving away once they are fledged. They are found in wooded areas sitting close to the trunk of a tree, especially where there are broadleaf trees that provide them with large holes for nesting. They are frequently seen in parks and gardens and will use suitable nesting boxes.
Tawny owls will sit and wait for prey before swooping down, they take earthworms, small mammals, small birds, frogs and insects.
