This species of owl is 36cm tall and has a wingspan of between 80-95cm. The barn owls mainly eat field voles, but they will also eat bank voles, shrews, mice, rats and small birds. they live for 20 – 25 years. The barn owl is very recognisable, with a white, round-ish face with brown wings. The female barn owl is the same, but has a darker shade of brown and has black spots.
The reason that I have gone for this owl is because, when I was younger, I went on a school trip, and I held a barn owl on my arm. Ever since, I have loved all kinds of owls. I personally think that they are absolutely beautiful and majestic creatures.
