Tawny Owl medium toby jug - Quail Ceramics circa 2020

Tawny Owl medium sized toby jug produced by Quail Ceramics of the Midlands, England, circa 2020. The tawny owl, also called the brown owl, is commonly found in woodlands across Europe to western Siberia and has seven recognized subspecies. It is a stocky, medium-sized owl, whose underparts are pale with dark streaks, and whose upper body may be either brown or grey. The tawny owl typically makes its nest in a tree hole where it can protect its eggs and young against potential predators. It is non-migratory and highly territorial: as a result, when young birds grow up and leave the parental nest, if they cannot find a vacant territory to claim as their own, they will often starve. The tawny owl is a nocturnal bird of prey. It is able to hunt successfully at night because of its vision and hearing adaptations and its ability to fly silently. It usually hunts by dropping suddenly from a perch and seizing its prey, which it swallows whole.
