Hello hello, Sara here! Thanks for pouring in your entries to the exciting Children’s Day contests around wildlife. We found a beautiful way to enjoy nature, while still being locked in, isn’t it?
Thanks to fun facts by Kaadoo, makers of wildlife-based, table top games and sponsors of the Children’s Day contest prizes.
Here is 7 year old Himika Chopra from Delhi with a cute write up on the owl.
Me : Hello Mr Owl how are you? Are you fine? Are you able to breathe?
Mr Owl: Nooo
The air is polluted. I can’t breathe. People are bursting crackers here and there.
Me : Don’t worry Mr Owl. I will take you to my backyard. It’s all green, full of fresh oxygen. I have planted many trees in my backyard. You can come and stay in any of the trees’ hollow.
Hey, Sara here again. Did you enjoy that adorable story on friendship? Now, as promised, some cool facts about Forest Eagle Owl, shared by Kaadoo, prepared in collaboration with World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF)
Cool Fact#1- The Forest Eagle Owl has very long, almost horizontal ear-tufts.
The Forest Eagle Owl is a large, powerful owl with very long, almost horizontal ear-tufts. The large ear tufts slant off to the sides It is also known as the Spot-bellied Eagle Owl.
Cool Fact 2: The Forest Eagle Owl is known for its weird, human-sounding call.
This call consists of a scream, which rises and then falls in tone. The territorial call of the species, like that of most other eagle-owls, consists of low hoots with two-second intervals between hoos. The voice is booming, deep and carries quite far. A low, deep double hoot lasting two seconds – “hoo hoo.” It also utters a mournful, mewing scream that rises and then falls in pitch and lasts about one second – “njaauuuw.”
