Title: Long-eared Owl

Although these woodland owls are gregarious in winter, they are so quiet during the day that up to a dozen may inhabit a dense evergreen grove without being detected. They have a tendency to roost near the trunk of a tree, and since they elongate themselves by compressing their feathers, they resemble part of the trunk itself. Only by peering intently upward can one detect the round face and telltale long ear tufts. A good way to locate an owl roost is to search in pine woods for groups of pellets on the ground. These regurgitated bundles of undigested fur and bones provide an excellent indication of the bird’s food habits.

Richard Sloan, who passed away in 2007, was a world-renowned wildlife illustrator specializing in raptors whose paintings have been featured in several nature publications and exhibited at numerous museums, galleries, and private collections. In the Spring of 1998, The University Of Arizona Press published the book “The Raptors Of Arizona“, a 220 page volume on the birds of prey of the Southwest, featuring 42 Sloan paintings. The handsigned limited edition print available for sale here is a reproduction of Richard Sloan’s original paintings featured in the book.
