The Eurasian Eagle-Owl (Bubo bubo) is a species of eagle owl resident in much of Eurasia. It is sometimes called the European Eagle-Owl and is, in Europe where it is the only member of its genus besides the Snowy Owl (B. scandiacus), occasionally abbreviated to just Eagle-Owl. In India, it is often called the Indian Great Horned Owl, though this may cause confusion with the similarly named American bird. It is one of the largest species of owls.

The Eurasian Eagle Owl is largely nocturnal in activity, as are most owl species. The call of the Eagle Owl is a deep resonant ooh-hu with emphasis on the first syllable for the male, and a more high-pitched uh-Hu for the female. Each member of an Eagle Owl population can be identified by means of its vocalizations.

This broad-winged species has a strong direct flight, usually consisting of shallow wing beats and long, fast glides. It has, unusually for an owl, also been known to soar on updrafts on a few occasions. The latter method of flight has led them to be mistaken for Buteos, which are smaller and quite differently proportioned

    I was given a spotted eagle owl whose one wing had been damaged by some youngsters, thus unable to fly, then after some months took it to a nature reserve to keep a yellow-billed kite company whose one wing was also permanently damaged by its previous owner/s who had put a metal ring around the wing, so Hitler - as it was named - wold never fly again. But Spot, my owl began hopping on to low branches, exercising its wing and one day my friend at the reserve excitedly phoned to tell me that Spot was actually flying! Wonderful news!!! Thus Spot's story had a very happy ending!!!
