Leucistic Eagle Owl

Bai Qingquan, a fellow birder from Dandong, has just sent me this photo of a leucistic Eagle Owl (Bubo bubo).  This bird had been terrorising a local farmer in Zhuanghe, Liaoning Province and had apprently taken two lambs and several chickens before the farmer was able to catch it.  It has since been released away from the farm..  An unusual looking bird.

    1. Hi Dev,
      Eagle Owls will tackle relatively large prey. It has been known for them to take small dogs! So lambs are certainly possible prey items. Eagle Owls are big and powerful birds! Cheers, Terry
