oa Journal of East African Natural History - Observations on Verreaux's Eagle Owl Bubo lacteus (Temminck) in Kenya

Volume 1965, Issue 111
  • ISSN : 0012-8317



This paper brings together scattered observations made in various parts of Kenya between 1947 and 1964. Little seems to have been published on the behaviour and habits of this owl, so that these details on breeding habits and food may be of value. The majority of the observations were made at a breeding site in Karen, 13 miles from Nairobi, in August-September 1963, but some observations were also made in Embu district, and at scattered localities elsewhere in Kenya.
