Tawny owl is a night that belongs to typical owl family of Strigidae. This owl can be commonly found in woodlands of the Czech Republic. It estimated that about 6000 to 9000 birds live in the Czech Republic. The natural habitat of tawny owl are old broadleaved forests but it can be commonly found also in coniferous and mixed woods. They inhabit parks and groves, they seem to nestle in large orchards and gardens with full-grown trees.

It has large rounded head with a round facial disc and dark brown eyes. The short legs are feathered to toes. The wingspan might reach 96cm. Wings are broad and rounded and the tail is rather short. Weight can range from 280g to 720g. The plumage colour can differ, the basic colour ranges from grey to various shades of brown to reddish colour.

Female owls protecting their eggs and later their chicks are combative and attack anything that in their sight possess a real threat. They might even attack a human, trying to aim at their head. It is, therefore, not reasonable to disrupt owls while nesting.

Birdhouses are manufactured in many different designs. It is truly important for us to provide birds with a secure home. Construction of each individual birdhouse is based on our considerable experience. We always meet the standards and recommendations set by Czech Society of Ornithology, member of BirdLife International.

We drew inspiration from current German literature on ornithology which helped us to carry out several technical improvements. Final construction was compared witha check list of The Cornell Lab of Ornithology from Cornell University in the USA. Therefore, we can ensure that we manufacture one of the best birdhouses in terms of their construction in the market.
