Barn Owls

Barn owls live in trees and abandoned buildings. They feed on small rodents. Large flight feathers quiet the flapping sound of their wings, while short head feathers help guide sound waves toward the owls’ ears (lower left). The barn owl’s hooked beak helps the bird tear meat (lower right).
