Owl Prints

Most people are fascinated with owls whether they are a bird watcher or not. They really are a pretty cool bird and I can see the attraction for a lot of different reasons. This page is dedicated to showing you prints of owls from North America that you can purchase from a few different places on the internet. Enjoy your visit and if there is an owl that I have missed and you would like to see it here, feel free to leave a comment and I will do my best to get it for you.

The Barn Owl

One of my favorite owls with its distinct face that is shaped like a heart. Beautiful coloring of white, gray and shades of brown. The barn owl is found on every continent of the world except Antarctica. Oddly they are not found in Australia, either. Nocturnal in its activities, it hunts for small mammals like voles, mice, rats, moles and shrews. They will also eat bats, frogs and insects.

Found mostly in North America the barred owl is also sometimes referred to as the hoot owl. We can usually hear them both during the day and at night. If you watch the skies closely you might see them hunting just before dark. It is one of the 4 species of owls that have dark eyes and eats small mammals along with fish and insects like grasshoppers and crickets. They will sometimes catch a snake for their dining pleasure, too.

Burrowing Owl

This small owl is called the Burrowing Owl because it actually lives on the ground in burrows that have been abandoned by different types of mammals. In North America it is mostly found in the regions west of the Mississippi Valley along with Florida. It is active during the day or the early evening and can often be seen sitting on a stump or mound of dirt on one foot watching for any prey it might find.

You will have to travel to the southwestern part of the United States to see this very small owl. It lives in arid desert areas that has a lot of cactus. In fact, it builds its nest in woodpecker cavities in cacti and deciduous trees. Their diet consists of mostly insects that they will catch and take back to a branch to eat.

I’ll be adding more owl photographic prints in the near future so come back again sometime soon ¬†for additional selections.
