Moose & Weasel’s PALS
Barn Owls prefer wide-open spaces like agricultural lands. They rely on barns and abandoned buildings to nest. Pairs use the same nest year after year.
Barn Owls have white, heart-shaped facial discs, long, curved bills and small, dark eyes. Female Barn Owls are 34 to 40 centimetres long, while males are smaller, at 32 to 38 cm long. Their wingspan is between 107 and 110 cm wide.
The Barn Owl has long talons that help it catch prey such as mice or voles in the long grass.
