Glaucidium perlatum Internal frame size: 22cm x 22cm Stitch count: 90 x 102 cross stitches These are the smallest owls, only18-19cms tall and so are now called ‘owletsâ€. In spite of their tiny size they are belligerent and seem to glare with hostility at intruders. On the back of their heads they have two dark spots which appear to be eyes, probably to confuse other birds which often mob them. They hunt from a perch from where they can see their prey and with whirring wings dive down, striking with their strong feet. This kit contains 14 count Aida, DMC stranded cotton, a needle, a chart and instructions.
