the stock piling thread made me think of other techniques that owls use. Does anyone know of things that owls do or use as tools or ways to make things easier for themselves. i'm not too good with wording or getting my point across so i will give you an example of what i mean Very Happy

The burrowing owl brings dung home and leave it there to attract the beetles which are highly rated on the menu by these owls. I think that is really intelligent. I also like the other story in the previous thread about leaving food to eat the maggots forming!!!

cant wait to hear more.

i have never heard of owls hunting together it is a very lone thing!! they dont really take prey large enough for hunting together.

great stuff bubo:) this is where i like to learn more. i can say we here in scotland havnt seen anymore then one owl at any time which indicates they dont hunt in a pack although there may be some that do in other countries.
i dont know if its what all barn owls/little owls and other small owls do, ours tend to save all there pellets up litterally in there nest boxes and use them as a nest? i think this is really weird it surely isnt very comfortable? all those bones and such like euurrghhh lol Shocked
i havnt heard of the dung thing tho bubo ty for that Smile

Do owls hunt in patterns - like a mosaic - such as quartering the area etc like the other BoPs? Our Brahminy Kites here on the beach are meticulous about it and I noticed the mighty Sea Eagle doing too the other day.

cheers - Ninox Cool
