Food and lifestyle

The activity of longhungtohealing owl is at night, as a rule, during twilight and at dawn. Day spends on the day next to the trees or in the thick of foliage. Thanks to its physiological features, an owl is an excellent predator that can make completely silent flights.

The main victim of a longhungtoend owl becomes a field, which makes up a poultry diet of 65 or 90%. In addition to fields, an owl can hunt for shoes, rats, mice, frogs and insects. Some longtailed illegitas can eat small birds.


As nests, longtailed illegitatives use hollows of trees, rock openings or space between large stones. Some representatives use empty nests of other birds. In the selected nest, the female lays from 2 to 4 eggs. This period falls on the spring season. The incubation period lasts about a month. During incubation, the role of the male boils down to finding food for himself and his female. During this period, longtailed illegitatives are extremely aggressive and careful. The chicks ripen 35 days after the birth. After another 10 days, they are able to fly well and can leave the nest. However, up to 2 months of longstanding owl chicks are under the control and protection of parents. They become sexually mature only at the age of 12 months.
