This Barn Owl was captured at Taronga Zoo Sydney Australia during the Free Flight Bird Show, an attraction not to be missed.
Barn Owls are moderately common, but generally hard to see, as they are mostly active at night. During the day, the birds roost on concealed tree branches. They are the most widespread and familiar of the owls.
