Boobook Owl

Ninox novaeseelandiae

The boobook owl is also known as the ‘morepork’ owl. Both names are derived from its distinctive two-syllabled call.



Size: 26 - 29cm
Weight: 150 - 216g



Boobook owls are found in New Zealand and on Norfolk Island. They live in forests and farmlands, and can also be seen in urban areas.



The boobook owl feeds mainly on insects, but also takes small birds, mice and other small mammals.



It nests and roosts in tree cavities. A clutch of eggs is laid in a nest hollow. The female incubates the eggs for about 33 days, while the male brings her food and remains nearby.



The boobook owl is not classed as endangered and its population is believed to be stable in the wild.
