Barn Owl 475x370mm 2016

The Barn Owl is one of the most widespread species of birds. It is found everywhere apart from the polar regions and large deserts. It is a fantastic hunter capable of virtually silent flight and able to see in near pitch darkness. Interestingly, Barn Owls are able to turn their heads 270 degrees to pinpoint any small noise they pick up. I have always loved their brillant white feathers and heart shaped faces.
