Tawny Owls, copyright Paula Kuitenbrouwer
I’ve positioned my Tawny owls on branches. Owls sit often in oak trees preferably a bit hidden from view, close to the trunk of a tree. They snooze and keep their cool while other birds try to chase them away. I’ve drawn oak and ivy leaves around them and a pine tree in the background. This scene shows our backyard with the owls that keep us awake at night. Do they look cute? Wait till they wake you up at night. Their screeching doesn’t sound cute at all. I wouldn’t like to be a mouse in our garden scavenging for food in the dark of the night.
