Barn Owl

Barn Owls occasionally nest in the Derbyshire village where I live and, as a result, I have been able to sketch them several times.  The subject of this sculpture was quite tolerant of people and flew during daylight hours, especially in the early morning.  I noticed it had a favourite perch on top of a telegraph pole, so I set my telescope up and waited for him to return.  The female bird had a nest in a nearby farm building.  Sometimes the male would make himself very thin and slender but when he puffed up his feathers he looked twice the size.  In the distance I could see him float effortlessly on his huge wings, searching for small rodents.
