제목 [조류] 수리부엉이

*학명:Bubo bubo

*:올빼미목

*:올빼미

부엉이는 ‘부엉부엉’ 소리를 낸다고 하여 붙은 이름이지만, 실제 이러한 소리를 내는 것은 수리부엉이뿐이다. 이 새의 특징은 머리에 난 귀 모양 깃털인데, 이는 칡부엉이의 2배나 된다. 부엉이 중 가장 사납고 큰 몸집을 자랑하는 만큼 밤의 황제라고 불리며, 밤하늘의 최후 포식자로 알려져 있다. 사냥한 먹이는 나무구멍 집 속에 저장하는데, 이렇듯 비축하는 습성 때문에 부자새로 불려왔으며, 재물을 상징하기도 한다.

수리부엉이는 특이하게 번식기가 늦겨울이다. 이는 황제펭귄과 마찬가지로 일찍 알을 낳아 먹이가 풍부한 여름에 새끼를 독립시키기 위함이다.

과거에는 흔한 텃새였으나 오염된 먹이와 서식지의 훼손, 인간에 의한 포획 등 다양한 요인으로 지금은 희귀종이 되었다.

Eurasian Eagle-OwlBubo bubo

The Eurasian Eagle-Owl is one of the largest species of owls in the world, but those living in Korea tend to be a bit on the smaller side. Eurasian Eagle-Owls prefer living in open areas and cliff faces as opposed to forests which is also something that makes them unique. These are large predatory birds covered in thick feathers that are brown with black patterns going in a horizontal fashion. Their eyes are red in color. They are, naturally, nocturnal, and are active until the wee hours of the morning. They rest sitting on large rocks or trees.

In Korea, these animals have traditionally been believed to be a symbol of wealth because of their ability to hunt at night with great success, while in Europe they have been viewed traditionally as a symbol of wisdom.

They generally eat pheasants, rabbits and mice, which they feed to their young. However, when they are on their own they will also eat snakes, frogs, insects and other things that their young are less willing to eat.

These birds can be found throughout Korea, and were declared a national treasure as well as an endangered species. The reason for this isnt just that they are experiencing a dramatic loss of habitat but their prey is also decreasing in numbers. Many of these owls now visit cities and towns to eat even domesticated animals like cats, small dogs and puppies and even prey upon chickens when available. Another somewhat interesting reason is that these owls are valued for their role in Chinese medicine and thus are sometimes hunted.
