    Description: The upperparts are brownblack and tawnybuff, showing as dense freckling on the forehead and crown, stripes on the nape, sides and back of the neck, and dark splotches on the pale ground colour of the back, mantle and scapulars. A narrow buff band, freckled with brown buff, runs up from the base of the bill, above the inner part of the eye and along the inner edge of the blackbrown, eartufts.

    Hunting & Food: Eagle Owls have various hunting techniques, and will take prey on the ground or in full flight. They may hunt in forests, but prefer open spaces.

    Eagle Owls will eat almost anything that moves from beetles to roe deer fawns. The major part of their diet consists of mammals Voles, rats, mice, foxes, hares etc..., but birds of all kinds are also taken, including crows, ducks, grouse, seabirds, and even other birds of prey including other owls. Other prey taken include snakes, lizards, frogs, fish, and crabs.

    The most common type of prey depends largely on relative availability, but are usually voles and rats. In some coastal areas, they have been known to feed mainly on ducks and seabirds.

    Pellets are somewhat compressed, irregularly cylindrical or conical shaped, averaging about 75 x 32 mm 3 x 1.25.



    Habitat: Eagle Owls occupy a variety of habitats, from coniferous forests to warm deserts. Rocky landscapes are often favoured. Adequate food supply and nesting sites seem to be the most important prerequisites.

    In the Design Studio

    We partner with the world's top museums and galleries to bring you exclusive prints of the highest quality. Our teams of designers ensure the colours are accurate, papers are well suited and the best frames are suggested.

    Colour Perfecting in the Print Room

    In the printing room, artworks are printed on state-of-the-art machines with a team of technicians checking colour and quality every step of the way.

    Measuring Up

    After being cut down to size, our team carefully finish any stray edges, check measurements and prepare the prints for mounting and framing.

    Assembling Frames in the Framing Workshop

    We have a team of master framers who work with high-quality, responsibly-sourced wood to create our vast range of framing combinations - each frame is bespoke and made to order for every print.

    Hand-finishing in the Framing Workshop

    Our selection of hand-finished frames are painted or stained by hand in a variety of colours, and finished with a layer of wax - the end result is a uniquely crafted, beautiful frame that is made to last.

    The Last Stop

    In this workshop everything comes together - the print, the frame and the glass - in a seamless and stream-lined process.

    Mounting the Prints

    The artwork is carefully mounted in preparation for framing.

    Laying the Glass

    Once mounted, the print is ready to be covered by glass or perspex - a delicate procedure but expertly done with not a fingerprint in sight.

    The Final Product

    After a final, thorough check, the framed print is ready to be carefully packaged up and shipped to the customer.

    Transferring to Canvas

    For those who order their art as canvas prints, the same amount of attention and care goes into the process. Here, the print is being transferred to a wooden frame.

    Finishing the Canvas Edging

    As with the framed prints, our canvases are all hand-finished in the workshop - a labour of love from start to finish.
