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), with its piercing eyes and unique features, is a captivating creature sure to make a lasting impression. Also known as the Northern Long-Eared Owl, Lesser Horned Owl, or Cat Owl, this medium-sized owl is a majestic sight to behold.

Widespread across North America, Europe, North Africa, and Central Asia, the Long-Eared Owl has made a name for itself in various habitats. Its preferred living arrangements include partially open spaces, like the edge of a wood. While they find comfort in dense woodland, they're also fond of hunting in open countryside.

These intelligent birds often repurpose the nests of other species, such as crows, instead of building their own. Talk about resourceful!

When it comes to dining, the Long-Eared Owl is all about those delicious rodents, with voles being their top choice. However, when hunger strikes and rodents are scarce, these owls show their adaptability by hunting for other birds and insects.
