The female lays two to three eggs and incubates them for a month while the male supplies her with food. The young are independent at four months of age.
Eagle owls can live in many different environments, from bird-rich archipelagos to forest clearings and bogs where they hunt voles. In recent times the eagle owl has been appearing more in cities, where there is a plentiful supply of park ducks, pigeons and rats on landfill sites.
In late February the eagle owl starts calling for a mate with its muffled ‘oohu’, which can be heard up to 4 km away.
