They are hard to capture as they move alot and easily spook.
It has been shown under controlled conditions that the Long-eared Owl can catch mice in complete darkness.
Like some other owls, the Long-eared Owl has asymmetrical ear openings: the left ear opening is higher than the right. This positioning helps the bird to locate prey by sound.
The hoot of the male Long-eared Owl can sometimes be heard up to 1 kilometer (0.7 mi) away.
