The common name of this owl is Long Eared Owl.
These owls are found in a lot of places around the world.
There are 200 types of owls. Recently, there has been a new type of owl found on an island in Indonesia. It seems that this owl is only on that island. They discovered the new owl by the sound of his call. I didn’t find any pictures of this owl yet.
Now. there are 201 types of owls.
All of the pictures are from Wikimedia Commons. None of the owls seemed to mind having their picture taken.
