We could hardly believe it when we got a message from Jos Baart telling us that Europe’s biggest owl, the Eurasian eagle-owl, had made a nest in a planter in front of his window. Not only that, she had also hatched three giant chicks! Now, when he watches television, three huge chicks watch television with him.
The scientific name for the Eurasian Eagle-owl is Bubo bubo, making it a cousin of both North America’s Great Horned Owl (Bubo virginanus) and the Snowy Owl (Bubo scandiacus). Eurasian Eagle-owls are likely the largest owl in the world. They are an apex predator with no natural predators.
