Indian Eagle-owl Profile
There’s an awe-inspiring gravity to an Eagle-owl’s bearing that further enhances its handsomeness. The Indian (also Bengal or Rock) Eagle-owl is a fairly large bird known at times to hunt down even peacocks, which makes it quite formidable. Unfortunately, these owls are themselves prey to some ridiculous human superstitions as omens of death, and quite paradoxically, birds of fortune. Mercifully, they are protected by law (and that does help) and their numbers are not alarmingly low…for now.
