LONG EARED OWL
Long eared owls possess tufts of feathers on their heads which help to funnel sound to their ears.  They feed primarily on rodents and in North America mammals account for 98% of their prey.  They inhabit dense forests and are rarely seen in Orange County.  An average of 4.5 eggs are laid between mid March and the end of May.  They migrate to some degree.
