Barn Owl

Tyto alba guttata

Barn owls are one of the most widespread land birds in the world! There are over 40 sub-species including the common barn owl found in the British Isles.



Size: 29 - 44cm
Weight: 187 - 700g



Barn owls live in lightly wooded areas. They are most active at dawn and dusk, and during the day they will roost in buildings or tree hollows.



They usually feed on rodents but their diet also includes small birds and large insects. The prey is swallowed whole and the indigestible parts are regurgitated later in the form of a pellet!



The eggs are incubated by the female, but once hatched the male will help to feed the young chicks. By the time they leave the nest at 10 weeks old they will have their adult plumage (feathers).



The barn owl is not endangered in the wild as there is currently a large population over a wide range.
