The fierce looking Screech Owl is small (7-10”), and well camouflaged. There are three colour phases: grey, red, and the more uncommon intermediate brown. During the day, the birds seek out trees that ‘match’ their colour scheme, and so are hard to locate. They nest in tree hollows but will readily accept purpose-built backyard nest boxes. At night, their calls (a spooky trilling) can be heard. Each of the paintings depict a different colour ‘morph’ and feature the owls’ camouflage ability.
