Tawny Owl

Strix aluco

Tawny owls enjoy the sceneries of southern Finland. They nest inside old, hollow oaks, maple trees, or Tilia. They will also accept the attics of buildings and large nest boxes as a suitable place to nest. The tawny owl is something of a newcomer to Finland. The first nests were found as late as in 1878.

Conservation status

LC stands for “least concern.” The species is well-known, and the population is abundant or stable.
