. Illustrated natural history : comprising descriptions of animals, birds, fishes, reptiles, insects, etc., with sketches of their peculiar habits and characteristics . Zoology. NOCTURNAL BIRDS OP PREY. 227 attacks young fawns, hares, and rabbits, together with small birds It inhabits the north of Europe, but has been several times ob- served in Great Britain. It lays its eggs in the clefts of rocks or in ruined buildings. The length of this bird is upwards of two feet.. The Eagle Owl. The Hawk or Canada Owl inhabits the Arctic portion* of Asia and America. Its head is not so round, nor is its face so broad, as those of the other owls, from which it is also distin- guished by its habit of hunting by day. In face it bears some resemblance to the harriers. It builds in trees, and lays two eggs — white, as are those of all owls. The eggs of owls are easily distinguished from other white eggs by a peculiar roughness of surface, which cannot be mistaken. The length of the Hawk Owl is from fifteen to eighteen inches. The Snowy Owl is properly an inhabitant of the north of Europe, but has more than once been discovered in Great Britain.
