Owl

Interesting I did not know there were two nouns "la chouette", "le hibou"

These means if the owl is laying eggs .... "la chouette" otherwise use "le hibou" ?

La chouette n´est pas la femelle du hibou - ce sont des animaux differents - la difference étant la présence d'aigrettes i.e. des plumes sur le crâne du hibou absentes chez la chouette.

j´espere avoir compris ta question...Bonne journee
