The Barn Owl (Tyto alba) is the most widely distributed species of owl, and one of the most widespread of all birds.
It is known by many other names, which may refer to the appearance, call, habitat or the eerie, silent flight: White Owl, Silver Owl, Demon Owl, Ghost Owl, Death Owl, Night Owl, Rat Owl, Church Owl, Cave Owl, Stone Owl, Monkey-faced Owl, Hissing Owl, Hobgoblin or Hobby Owl, Dobby Owl,White Breasted Owl, Golden Owl, Scritch Owl, Screech Owl, Straw Owl, Barnyard Owl and Delicate Owl.

Owls are one of the oldest species of vertebrate animal in existence, fossils have been found dating back 60 million years, showing the bird to have changed very little in that time.

Throughout the history of mankind, the owl has featured significantly in mythology & folklore. Owls are one of the few birds that have been found in prehistoric cave paintings. Owls have been both revered & feared throughout many civilisations from ancient to more recent times.

These birds fly over our home all the time. I had one fly above my head this summer that was so low it made my hair move!

This is dedicated to my best friend steppeland. I love you!

    Great composition. Is it digital art?

  • Thank you. It’s both digital and traditional. I always sketch my paintings before I paint them with my Wacom tablet.
