The Taylor White Collection's 18th Century Watercolour Painting of The Indian Scops Owl

Our Indian Scops Owl fine art print comes from the original collection of Taylor White F.R.S. (1701-1772). In the mid-18th Century, White commissioned the celebrated wildlife painter, Peter Paillou (c.1720 - c.1790) to paint a number of specimens for his collection. The watercolour painting of the Indian Scops Owl was one of these masterpieces, which emerged from the collaboration between White and Paillou.

The original watercolour of the Indian Scops Owl is extremely finely painted, with incredible detail, allowing you to see the Indian Scops Owl's plumage and features in stunning clarity. This depth of colour and detail has been captured brilliantly through the digitalisation process and is replicated for you on this delightful fine art print, which is now available for your home or office décor, or to buy as a thoughtful gift for your friends and family.

Taylor White, a barrister by profession and landowner on the Nottinghamshire / Yorkshire border, was a keen naturalist and collector. He commissioned over 900 paintings of birds, mammals, reptiles and fish from the finest painters of his day. He was a governor and the founding Treasurer of The Foundling Hospital in London, as well as being a Fellow of The Royal Society. He was extremely well-connected in Society, which enabled him to create such a world-class collections of specimen and thus paintings. White's father in-law was Major-General John Armstrong, who as Surveyor-General of the Ordnance, Chief Royal Engineer and Quartermaster-General to the Forces, has his offices in The Tower of London. Consequently, Taylor White had access to the birds and beasts of The Royal Menagerie at the Tower. He also was able to borrow specimen from The British Museum. Some rarer and more exotic specimens were brought back from their great travels across the globe by his Royal Society friends, the naturalist Sir Joseph Banks, Bt. and the famous clockmaker, John Harrison.

The Indian Scops Owl

The Indian Scops Owl (Scientific name: Otus bakkamoena),

native to South Asia, is a small to medium-sized owl known for its nocturnal habits and captivating physical features. Distinguished by its rounded head without ear tufts, large yellow-orange to deep orange eyes, and cryptic plumage, this owl measures between 23-25 cm. They possess an impressive ability to camouflage, elongating their bodies and narrowing their eyes to a thin slit to resemble a tree branch when threatened.

The habitat of the Indian Scops Owl extends across India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and parts of Southeast Asia, often favoring deciduous forests, plantations, and gardens. Their diet is primarily insectivorous, consisting of beetles, moths, and locusts, but they are also known to feed on small mammals, birds, and reptiles. Breeding between February and April, these monogamous owls often reuse old woodpecker holes or natural tree cavities for their nests. They have a lifespan of up to 10 years in the wild, but in captivity, with optimal conditions and care, they can live up to 20 years.

Despite being classified as Least Concern by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the population trend for the Indian Scops Owl is decreasing. Threats include habitat loss, fragmentation, hunting, and trafficking for the illegal pet trade, making conservation efforts crucial for this species. Understanding and appreciating these unique creatures are critical steps in ensuring their protection and preservation for future generations.
