The Taylor White Collection

The watercolour painting of the Long-Eared Owl comes from the collection of Taylor White F.R.S. (1701-1772). In the mid-18th Century, White commissioned the celebrated wildlife painter, Charles Collins (c.1680 - 1744) to paint a number of specimens for his collection. The Long-Eared Owl was one of the watercolour paintings, which resulted from the collaboration between White and Collins.

Taylor White, a barrister by profession, 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 Fellow of The Royal Society and founding Treasurer of The Foundling Hospital in London.

The original watercolour of the Long-Eared Owl is extremely finely painted, with great detail being seen in all of the details of the painting. This depth of colour and detail has been captured brilliantly through the digitalisation process and is replicated for you on this delightful journal.

The Long-Eared Owl

The Long-Eared Owl (Scientific name: asio otus) is an owl, which is distributed across North America, Europe, North Africa and central Asia. It is also known as the Northern Long-Eared Owl, Lesser Horned Owl or Cat Owl. It is a medium-sized owl.

The Long-Eared Owl prefers to live in habitats which are partially open, such as the edge of a wood, as they live in the dense woodland, but hunt over open countryside. Often they will use the nests of other birds, such as cows, rather than build their own.

The Long-Eared Owl mainly eats rodents, such as voles, but when needs must they also hunt for other birds or insects.
