Barn Owl Flight ( Tyto alba ) by 


The barn owl is a raptor, a nocturnal bird of prey like other owls. Eagles, falcons and hawks are also raptors, but they live by day. Barn owls like to live in barns; that’s how they got their name. They’ve always adapted to man-made structures like attics, silos, steeples, and, of course, man-made nesting boxes.
BIG WINGS, SILENT FLIGHT
A barn owl is about the size of a small cat, but only weighs a pound. His huge 42" wingspan accommodates slow silent flight – silent due to soft fringe-edged feathers that don’t “swoosh” as they move. Silent flight means curtains for an unsuspecting rodent.
