MY BOOK OF FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHS

Portrait of a Barn Owl – Tyto Alba taken at Peel Park, Bradford, West Yorkshire, England, UK.

Family
Owls (Tytonidae).

Overview
With heart shaped face, buff back and wings and pure white under parts the barn owl is a distinctive and much loved countryside bird. Widely distributed across the UK, and indeed the world, the bird has suffered declines over the past fifty years as a result of the degradation of once prey-rich habitats in the face of intensive agricultural practices. This decline, fortunately, has halted in many areas and the population may now be increasing.

Where to see them
Open country, along field edges, riverbanks and roadside verges.

When to see them
All year round; during the day, but best at dusk.

What they eat
Mice, voles and shrews.
