The diet of the eagle owl, Bubo bubo (Linnaeus, 1758), has been studied in Europe and the Iberian Peninsula, but less studied in Catalonia. The principal prey in the Iberian Peninsula is the rabbit, whereas in Catalonia this one has lower importance and it is complemented with the rat. Some studies demonstrate variations in the diet because of the habitats that compose the home range. The objective of the study is to analyse the diet of the eagle owl to know its composition and the contribution of the biomass. Also, to determine if there are relations with the home range/hunting area (25 km2) of the territories. The methodology used to determine the diet has been a collection of the prey remains in the nest, obtaining the historic diet of the nesting season (...).
