Barn Owl
A widespread but usually scarce species, Barn Owl can be found in almost any open habitat in which prey and nesting sites are available, from deserts to farms to marshes. It preys on mice and on other rodents .

Barn Owl are strikingly pale below and sometimes mistaken for the diurnal snowy owl,but its buff and gray upperparts, dark eyes in a white facial disc, and long legs set it apart from other American Owls.This species is strictly nocturnal and rarely observed in flight even at dusk.

VOICE a bone-chilling, screeching hiss, often given in flight; similar to begging cries of fledglings of many larger owls but usually with less nasal quality.
