Long-eared Owl (Asio otus) in Zurich, Katzensee

Was very surprised when I’ve seen the long-eared owl end of April in the wild and the first time in my life 🙂 Was not that easy to recognize and quite far away, which had an impact on the picture-quality.

A few days later they where also hunting in the evening. I was a bit too tired or whatever to increase the shutter speed. …

Beginning of Mai then, I’ve found a quite small one very close to the first spot. My little son 6y recognized it very hidden in a tree.

And the day after then the juveniles of the one above even harder (manual focus etc.) to catch – but if they open their eyes 🙂

  1. Hi, fellow bird nerd here. I’m very interested to try and see these owls on our layover in Zurich early February. Can you give me any tips where to see them? Many thanks
